FilmRise has acquired worldwide distribution rights to the Marilyn Manson-starring revenge thriller Let Me Make You a Martyr, and will release the film across all digital and home media platforms in early 2017.

In his biggest onscreen role to date, Manson stars as a hardened, contemplative hit man hired by the father to kill his son. However, the siblings join forces to take down the abusive Midwestern patriarch. Mark Boone Junior and Niko Nicotera are also featured in the cast.

Marking the feature debut of co-directors Corey Asraf and John Swab, the film was written by Swab and produced by Asraf, Swab, Michael Jefferson, Sam Quartin and Mark Boone Junior, among others.

The deal was negotiated by Max Einhorn with Christina Campagnola of APA.
