I'm Ready For My Close-Up, Mr. Dickinson

June 26th, 2007

UK music journalist Dave Ling is reporting that Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson’s pet film project is finally coming to fruition.

We chatted to both Bruce and guitarist Janick Gers, the former revealing that his movie about occult legend Aleister Crowley (infamous as ‘the wickedest man in the world’) shortly enters production, with Simon Callow – of Amadeus, Shakespeare in Love and, appropriately, The Phantom of the Opera – set for the title role. Dickinson has spent 12 years working on this project, and is understandably thrilled to get it moving at last. Though Bruce isn’t planning a successor to 2005’s ‘Tyranny Of Souls’ in the break before Maiden’s next summer tour, he doesn’t rule out getting together with producer/guitarist Roy Z to work on some new music for the soundtrack.

    If he doesn’t do a cover of ‘Mr. Crowley’ for the soundtrack the terrorists have already won.

    Damn terrorists always ruining movie soundtracks! I wonder if Jimmy Page will have a supporting role.
