It was years ago when we first reported on Marilyn Manson’s idea for a movie called Phantasmagoria, which was to be based on Alice in Wonderland scribe Lewis Carroll. Despite numerous delays, it appears things *may* be back on track as a teaser trailer has recently surfaced.
MarilynManson.net is where the teaser trailer appeared out of the blue yesterday, and according to Bloody Disgusting “Manson has recently talked about returning to the project he abandoned four years ago“.
Here are the details of the clip:
Originally conceived in 2004 with pre-production throughout 2005 via The Wild Bunch (UK) and with an initial budget of $5-7 million, ‘Phantasmagoria’ was due to begin filming in 2006. Lily Cole, inspiration of Tim Burton’s recent ‘Alice in Wonderland’, was originally cast as Manson’s Alice for ‘Phantasmagoria’.
This teaser also features real-life twin sisters engaging in questionable acts and burlesque superstar Dita Von Teese in artistic full-nude. The figure in the medical mask is artist Gottfried Helnwein, and the bird-face masked character and white-gloved Lewis Carroll impresario [are both] Marilyn Manson.
