Ezra Miller to star in new film about Norwegian black metal?

At only 19 years old, Ezra Miller is arguably one of the most interesting young actors working in film today.

After star-making turns in films like AFTERSCHOOL and WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN, the indie darling has key roles two eagerly anticipated features, including Stephen Chbosky's THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER and Sophie Barthes' retelling of the classic MADAME BOVARY. According to a recent interview the actor had with Vulture, it appears as though he’s only just getting started.

Miller revealed that he may also be teaming up with LOVE EXPOSURE director Shion Sono for a new film. Apparently, Sono is working on “a movie about Norwegian black metal band called Mayhem that is, in my opinion, the craziest story in rock and roll history. It’s got church burnings, and a former band member murdered a current band member.” The two “exchanged faithful vows,” so it appears as though this is actually going to happen. And we can all be insanely thankful for that.

Much of the success of WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN was due to Miller's incredibly understated performance, inasmuch that he managed to both hold his own and stand out opposite the ever-commanding presence of Tilda Swinton. While I am not familiar with Sono's work, the premise of this film sounds interesting, and consequently I have a lot of hope for it. Despite not being a fan of Norwegian black metal I do love a good film, and this sounds exactly like one of those.
