Rock icon Iggy Pop will play a serial killer in a new film directed by horror legend Dario Argento.
In order to shoot the film, Argento is looking to raise $250,000 in crowdsourced funds via IndieGoGo.
In a video discussing his role in the project, Iggy Pop said, "To make a Christmas movie with the master, with Dario Argento, that would be a dream come true. The master of Italian horror... The man whose strange, beautiful and terrifying films have always fascinated and thrilled me."
He furthered, "If I could play the Sandman for Dario, it would make my life complete. And I hope I haven't just written my own epitaph."
About the film, Argento said, "I am tired of these Christmas movies showing goodness, beauty, snowflakes, sleds pulled by reindeer… I'd rather have a Christmas movie where there is also strength, violence, horror."
The Sandman tells the story of Nathan, a young student in the city who struggles to forget his childhood trauma at the hands of the serial killer dubbed "The Sandman."
The soundtrack will feature an exclusive song by Scott Weiland.
