Jonas Akerlund, who directed Beyoncé’s Lemonade short film earlier this year, is working on a new feature-length film called Lords of Chaos. The production is based on the story of Norwegian black metal band Mayhem, whose controversial legacy includes church burnings and the murder of guitarist Øystein Aarseth by Burzum guitarist Varg Vikernes.
As Deadline reports, singer Sky Ferreira has been cast in Lords of Chaos, giving the singer her second role this year after being cast in the Edgar Wright film Baby Driver. Given the talent involved and the fucked-up story of Mayhem, we’re excited to see how this pans out.
Ferreira was last seen performing at David Lynch’s Festival of Disruption in Los Angeles.
