His upcoming movie is inspired by the book ‘Lords of Chaos’ written by Michael Moynihan and Didrik Søderlind. Here is the official synopsis: “A teenager’s quest to launch Norwegian Black Metal in Oslo in the 1980s results in a very violent outcome.

A group of young men with a flair for publicity, church-burning, and murder: MAYHEM.” Rory Culkin is starring in the film along with Emory Cohen, Sky Ferreira, Jack Kilmer, and Valter Skarsgård. The story is co-written by Dennis Magnusson and Jonas Akerlund.
