After spending a lot of time getting to the bottom and going back to the top of the slide, where it stopped and turned and then went for a ride ’til it got to the bottom and saw you again, Manson Girls is finally ready to start filming.
Deadline is reporting that a February shoot has been set for the long-gestating flick. Susanna Lo is directing the film about the female devotees who joined Manson’s flock in the 1960s and helped carry out brutal killings meant to start an apocalyptic race war. Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects) will portray Manson in the film, which TriCoast Worldwide boarded this month at AFM.
Cast as some of the real-life Manson followers are Eric Balfour (Skyline) as Bobby Beausoleil, Monica Keena (Freddy vs. Jason) as Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, Tania Raymonde (Texas Chainsaw 3D) as Leslie Van Houten, and Laura Harring (Mulholland Drive) as Alice Rainer. Lo’s also got a cameo earmarked for Ron Jeremy, who’ll play the director of The Ramrodder, the softcore film that featured Beausoleil and fellow Manson Family member Catherine Share in small roles.
Manson is a role that Moseley was kind of born to play so we’ll keep this one firmly on the radar!
