Danzig Will Play “Violent Thug” In Film About Porn Star, While Max Cavalera Is Scoring It

Posted by on March 8, 2013

Thomas Mignone made a name for himself directing music videos for System Of A Down, Sepultura and more. Now, the director is working on a film based on the gritty life of Latina adult film actress Vanessa Del Rio. And scoring the film will be none other than Max Cavalara of Soulfly. However, it’s the acting role that Glenn Danzig has been cast in that’ll likely interest you more.

Danzig is set to play a violent thug in the film, which takes place in New York City’s Times Square circa late 1970s. Granted, this isn’t the former Misfits singer’s first foray into acting. In addition to a small role in The Prophecy II (and a voice-over cameo in an Aqua Teen Hunger Force episode), Danzig had actually been in talks to play Wolverine in the X-Men films (a role that would end up going to Hugh Jackman). Here’s just hoping that any fighting scenes Danzig films as a violent thug don’t end like this.

Mignone is currently trying to raise funds for the film via Indiegogo. One of the perks being offered is an autographed shooting script signed by Danzig and the director (as seen above). Only 66 copies are being offered, but it’ll cost you $100. Check out video of Max Cavalera explaining his involvement with the film in the video below.
