While in Dublin, Ireland for the EMAs, MTV News’ John Norris caught up with Manson, who talked about the movie screenplay he’s working on, titled “Holy Wood,” and how the film’s subject matter will complement Manson’s next studio album.

“I’m at that point in my career where I wanted to make this film,” Manson said, “and I’m [also] making this new record, where I really examine suffering and where celebrities come from. How it all kind of traces back in religion, and celebrities and Hollywood all kind of relate to each other. And that’s very American.” [RealVideo]

Manson says that he’s hoping that “Holy Wood” will go into production sometime in
the next year; we’ll keep you posted.
