As Martha reported back in August of last year, Marilyn Manson was and is eager to move from guy everyone blames for killing kids through music to guy everyone blames for killing kids through movies. Yes, the one-time controversial rocker is gearing up to direct his first film according to Production Weekly.

The film, you ask? Well, it's called Phantasmagoria - The Visions of Lewis Carroll, and will be based on the life of the Alice in Wonderland author as well as tie in Carroll's famous poem of the same name. Wearing a number of different hats for this one, Manson has also co-written the screenplay (along with Anthony Silva) and will score the film as well as play the author himself.

Oh, it gets so much better - apparently Angelina Jolie is in talks to play the Red Queen, while model Lily Cole is taking on the role of Alice. Okay, am I the only one who thinks this film is going to be absolutely insane? I can only imagine (along with men everywhere, I'm sure) the kinds of outfits Manson will fit Jolie with should she take the part. Yeah, I think I'm looking forward to this one.
