The script was written by John Swab and hones in on two adopted siblings who fall in love and set out on a rigid, heart-stirring journey to kill their father, Larry, who is played by Boone.
Manson, having appeared on screen in the 1999 film Jawbreaker alongside his then-girlfriend, Rose McGowan, also appeared in the 2003 film Party Monster, starring, Macaulay Culkin. His upcoming role in Let Me Make You a Martyr as a Native American hit man named Pope, however, just may take the cake in terms of performance and earn him true credibility in the realm of the film world.
Currently filming on location in Tulsa, OK, Manson says of his role as Pope to Rolling Stone Magazine, “I just had to observe the level of poverty and, I guess, white trash element to the story. The house where my character lives, sort of on a swamp on a reservation, looked like a combination between Texas Chain Saw Massacre and . It was pretty epic. Just seeing that, I knew where to go.”
Let Me Make You a Martyr posted a link on its official Facebook page on August 12 stating that the public’s monetary support is very much encouraged in order to release the film in 2016. The post states, “Help us spread the word about our film, we’ve launched a Kickstarter to raise the funds to complete post production and get the film out into the world! ”
