Rory Culkin to star in film about Norwegian guitarist Euronymous

Actor Rory Culkin is set to star in a film about the murder of black metal star Euronymous.

Lords of Chaos will center on the life of the co-founder of the Norwegian black metal band Mayhem and the events that led up to his death.


The film will be directed by Swedish filmmaker Jonas Akerland, who has won three Grammys for directing music videos for Madonna and Paul McCartney.


Culkin will star alongside X-Men: First Class' Caleb Landry Jones in the movie.


It is unclear what parts the actors will play, but they have been confirmed for lead roles.


Euronymous was murdered by fellow musician Varg Vikernes in 1993, at the age of 25.
