Iron Maiden singer to unveil film at Cannes

Looks like it’s that time of the year already, when the offbeat and unusual get their headlines by virtue of turning up at Cannes. According to a report in the BBC, Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson will unveil a film at this year’s Cannes festival. “Chemical Wedding” stars Simon Callow as Professor Haddo, the reincarnation of British occultist Aleister Crowley, once described as Britain’s most evil man. Julian Doyle, who directed the video for the band’s 1988 single ‘Can I Play with Madness’, co-wrote the script with Dickinson and is directing. The reaction from test screenings are that it is very much in the vein of the Hammer Horror films.
