Marilyn Manson has been tapped to score the remake of the 1974 horror flick “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” The film, currently in production, will be directed by Marcus Nispel, known for his work in the commercial and music video realm (Puff Daddy’s “Victory,” No Doubt’s “Spiderwebs”). A New Line Films spokesperson had no word as to whether or not a soundtrack would be released to retail.
“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” has become a midnight movie staple. The remake is being produced by Michael Bay, known for extravagant action films such as “Pearl Harbor” and “Armageddon.” The film will star Jessica Biel (“Rules of Attraction,” “7th Heaven”), Jonathan Tucker (“The Virgin Suicides”), and Eric Balfour (“24,” “Six Feet Under”).
Additionally, Manson has revealed further details for his “Resident Evil”, and four of his contributions appear on the Island Def Jam/Roadrunner soundtrack, which debuted in late March at No. 24 on The Billboard 200. He said a number cuts that didn’t make the soundtrack, despite their appearance in the film, will potentially be made available on his official Web site in the future.
