Marilyn Manson and fiancee Evan Rachel Wood are to star in a gory horror movie together.

The 41-year-old goth rocker and the 22-year-old Wrestler star have signed up to Splatter Sisters, which Variety describes as a "sexploitation-serial-killer-slasher-road-movie circa 1989".

Filmmaker David Gordon Green said: "This is a role Marilyn Manson was born to play, and with Evan Rachel Wood bringing dramatic gravity to the ensemble, I have no doubt this will take the horror genre to a new level."

The film, written by Adam Bhala Lough, was announced at Cannes and will be produced by Green and Edward R Pressman.

Lough believes Splatter Sisters could create a subgenre, which he calls "Skinemax Cinema", based on the direct-to-cable movies of his childhood.

Pressman said: "Lough's unique talent and energy will make Splatter Sisters a very special and markedly commercial film. I've always been attracted to smart movies about killers made by directors with a real vision."

Manson made his acting debut in 1997 in David Lynch's Lost Highway and has since had a variety of film roles.
