Published Jul 17, 2009Shock rocker Marilyn Manson will produce a musical film version of classic fairy tale Cinderella with a "goth" twist, according to the UK Press Association.
The "all-singing" film will reportedly star Harry Potter moppet Emma Watson, while the full nature of Manson's involvement as producer is still up in the air. However, one thing's for sure: the dark, gothic version of the pauper-turned-princess story should be chock full of Manson-inspired, or perhaps even Manson-written, songs and enough black mascara to choke a horse.
The film will be Watson's first outside of the Harry Potter chronicles and, who knows, if Tim Burton's upcoming Alice in Wonderland adaptation hits it big at the box office, maybe Manson will also have a winner on his hands and he can start making films full-time like fellow shock-rocker Rob Zombie.
The start date of preproduction for Manson's Cinderella has not yet been announced.
