Marilyn Manson To Play Queen Of Hearts In 'Alice' Adaptation


Marilyn Manson is about to take another kind of plunge down the rabbit hole. Manson will play the Queen of Hearts in a cinematic re-imagining of "Alice in Wonderland" called "Living in Neon Dreams."

It won't be too much of a stretch, as Manson played a drag queen in "Party Monster," but he said this role requires a bit more commitment, since it's less of a caricature, however campy the film's looking-glass world might appear to be.

"I'm not just playing a drag queen, I'm playing a woman," Manson explained. "There's a big difference, and there's more work to do on that. So I'm studying early Joan Crawford, and I've been kind of watching the lady at home, picking up some characteristics. She can teach me how to put my stockings on straight, though I think I've already mastered that."

Also in the movie are Alan Cumming (playing the King of Hearts), Nia Vardalos, Daryl Hannah, Tim Roth and Jonathan Pryce. The film will start shooting next month in Berlin and Cape Town, South Africa, and it's projected to come out next year.

Even though I don't think much of him, he'll make a great QoH I think. And this film will hopefully come up to expectations.

"So I'm studying early Joan Crawford"

LMAO Funny as that is, it's a good idea I think, but I wonder if he's going to start beating children with coat hangers!
