Ghost frontman, Tobias Forge recently sat down with Revolver and revealed that the band is currently working on releasing a movie. He didn’t reveal much but he did mention that it won’t be a biopic.
“Most films about bands are biographical, and I see no reason to tell our story yet. It’s a little bit like premature ejaculation. You have to have a career first and then you can tell the real story, so that was never an option. And when you yank away that, what do you have? Well, that would be a fictional story.”
He went on to add that filming will be tough as he is constantly busy and has a family back home.
“The cog wheels are turning on that one. We’re just trying to figure out a lot of the practicalities. Making a film is a big endeavor. Another problem that I have had over the course of my career is that I don’t have a shit-ton of time. I am also a father of two kids and I’m married. I try to not to break my back. I’ve been so close so many times to overworking and I said yes to everything just because I was so keen on not losing momentum. I’ve learned over the years that it’s really important not to do everything at once.”
Tobias also shared that they will be working on a follow up to Prequelle in January that will be darker and heavier.
“I want to make a different record from ‘Prequelle“. I want it to feel different. If I dare to say heavier, people think that it’s going to be Mercyful Fate all the way … but I definitely have a darker, heavier record in mind.”
