If I were to tell you that a black-and-white silent film about an evil guitar is on the horizon, I bet you would think, "Interesting."  If I added that the cast includes Slash, Josh Homme, Lemmy Kilmister, Grace Jones, Iggy Pop, Henry Rollins, and Tom Araya (just to name a few), I bet you would tell me to lay off the sauce.

But, it's TRUE! Just read this amazing summary:

“The film is set in a world where God has saved the world from sin by taking from mankind the Devil’s ‘Grail of Sin’…..the Evil Guitar. The Earth has now turned into a puritan world where there is no room for sex, drugs or rock ‘n’ roll.

From up on high in heaven a “punk-angel”, Vicious (portrayed by Iggy Pop), looks upon the world with weary bored eyes. Behind God’s back, Vicious sends the Devil’s guitar back to earth and sin in all its forms returns to mankind.

An evil puritan priest (Henry Rollins) manipulates a naive girl to retrieve the guitar and destroy it. On her quest to find the Devil’s Grail Of Sin, the girl is forced to face the world’s most evil rock and roll bastards. Throughout her journey, she has a rival in the form of a rock chick determined to stop her from destroying the instrument.”

Sadly, no screening dates have been announced, but you can get the skinny on the movie here.
