Iron Maiden Singer Resurrects Mr. Crowley

Famed British occultist/pornographer/drug addict/megalomaniac Aleister Crowley has long been a folk hero of sorts within the heavy metal community. And now, Iron Maiden lead singer Bruce Dickinson--another idol of dragon T-shirt wearing basement dwellers everywhere--is bringing Crowley to the screen for the very first time.

Dickinson co-wrote the film Chemical Wedding with Julian Doyle, the director. In the already completed movie, acclaimed English actor Simon Callow plays Haddo, a college professor who brings Crowley back from the dead. Interestingly, Haddo was the name of a character inspired by Crowley in W. Somerset Maugham's 1908 novel The Magician.

Chemical Wedding is set to be unveiled at the Cannes Film Festival in May. According to Yahoo! Music News, Dickinson plans to fly a bunch of guests out to France in his own Boeing 757 for the premiere. Expect a full theatrical release for Chemical Wedding this summer.

The legend of the Vault continues to grow. Earlier today, I was invited by Zombo's Closet of Horror to join the newly inaugurated League of Tanna Tea-Drinkers, a not-so-secret society of horror bloggers. I'm pleased by the honor, and especially love the Kharis-themed insignia! Other invited bloggers include Frankensteinia's Pierre Fournier and Kim Paffenroth, author of Gospel of the Living Dead, which sits proudly displayed on the Vault of Horror bookshelf.

For a minute there I thought it said Simon Cowell was to star, that would have been horrible. Thankfully I re-read it before flying off the handle.

HA, yeah, I thought I read that too on a quick first viewing. Simon Callow is a very fine actor though--he's best known in America for playing Mozart's best friend Shikaneder in Amadeus. He originated the role of Mozart in the original English stage production.

I gotta disagree, dudes. I think Simon Cowell in a moving would rule- just think, that snarky little bugger getting tormented by the Idol rejects, I can see it now! ;)

I thought the same thing when I read it quickly.
And congrats on the award.

B-Sol said...

Jo, you really gotta stop sniffing that glue, deary.

Thanks for the congrats, Ryne!

Speaking of Crowley, the April issue of Fortean Times #235 is supposedly going to have a big story on him too.
