Charlie, Charlie Everywhere
Charles Manson may be dead, but he doesn’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon. The guy’s name just keeps popping up in the news (which would no doubt please him immensely). Star of GHOST ADVENTURES and documentarian behind DEMON HOUSE Zak Bagans, who managed to snag a pair of Manson’s dentures for his haunted Museum in Las Vegas, is executive producing a documentary about Manson entitled MANSON’S BLOODLINE. Quentin Tarantino’s movie featuring Manson is still in the works. And Mary Harron, director of AMERICAN PSYCHO, is re-teaming with screenwriter Guinevere Turner for their own Manson film, CHARLIE SAYS. That’s a lot of Manson, yo.
Manson’s grandson, oil worker Jason Freeman, was “awarded” Manson’s body this month, some four months after the infamous convict’s death. Freeman will oversee Manson’s funeral and the handling of his remains. Freeman is also working on his OWN documentary, to be titled…MANSON’S BLOODLINE! Is this the same documentary that Bagans is working on? Seems likely.
While we’re talking about Manson, Brian Hugh Warner, aka Marilyn Manson, who was the first guy to really cash-in on Charles Manson’s notoriety, recently did a cover of Gerard McMahon’s “Cry Little Sister” from the THE LOST BOYS soundtrack. You can listen to it here, though I’m not sure why you’d want to.
