In his upcoming movie Let Me Make You a Martyr, Marilyn Manson plays Pope, a hitman hired to murder a crime boss and the abusive father (portrayed by Mark Boone Junior) of two adopted siblings (Niko Nicotera, Sam Quartin). The action crime drama was written, directed and co-produced by Corey Asraf and John Swab.
At the start of the trailer, Manson asks, “You ever kill a man with your bare hands?” before welding a gun and creepily singing a song in a car’s passenger seat. When they pull up to a house in the last few seconds, the driver asks, “You’re going to kill me in there, aren’t you?” Manson just stares in silence as the music grows louder and the trailer cuts to the name of the film.
Since establishing himself as a shocking figure in the music world, the “Beautiful People” rocker has acted in multiple projects, including a recurring role in the WGN America supernatural drama Salem. In other Marilyn Manson news, the star recently revealed that his 10th studio album Heaven Upside Down is finished right in time for his tour in July.
Let Me Make You a Martyr is scheduled for a limited release May 25 before expanding to more theaters through June 9. It is also scheduled to debut June 6 on VOD.
