Rathbone does Varg Vikernes

jr4

Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet features Jackson Rathbone, who will take on the part of Norwegian Varg Vikernes in the movie about his life, Lords of Chaos!

TwentySomethingtweek provides translation and the full story- here's a snippet:

“In September they’ll start shooting Lords of Chaos, a movie about Varg “Greven” Vikernes and the Norwegian black metal community. The movie is based on the book Lords of Chaos: The Bloody Rise of The Satanic Metal Underground, by Didrik Søderlind and Michael Moynihan.

Producer Stuart Pollok is currently in Cannes looking for investors.

-Why did you choose to make this movie?:

It’s a fascinating subject, a great visual world, and an interesting portrait of Norway. It’s possible that black metal has been Norways biggest cultural export the last 20 years. It’s a story about young people and youthful energy, says Pollok (producer), and emphasizes that it’s likely to be a teen psychological thriller.
