WTF: James Iha Is Scoring a Lifetime Movie
Published May 19, 2016James Iha has led one of the most unique careers of anyone in the music industry, and it just keeps getting weirder. In recent years, he's contributed to a kids show, collaborated with YMO's Yukihiro Takahashi and even done the impossible by reuniting with Billy Corgan. Proving he's still got some surprises up his sleeve, however, he'll now score a Lifetime movie.
No strangers to scores, Iha previously handled the music on the Hulu original series Deadbeat. This time around, he'll lend his sounds to a new Lifetime movie called Mother, May I Sleep with Danger?
Of course, the whole project reeks of Lifetime's recent ironically detached self-awareness. The film is a remake of their own 1996 Tori Spelling/Ivan Sergei TV movie that became a cult classic thanks to its same-sex vampire love story.
Spelling and Sergei will also star in the remake. And in case you didn't guess already, the film will also star James Franco, who also wrote the story and executive produced the remake. Because of course he did.
Mother, May I Sleep with Danger? will premiere on June 18.
