Marilyn Manson Confirmed As Star Of Quentin Dupieux's Cannes Short Film 'Wrong Cops'

Well, in some alternate Quentin Dupieux universe, full of non-sequiturs and ironic detachment, this completely makes sense. Fresh off news of the Cannes Directors' Fortnight line-up earlier today, which listed Dupieux's short film "Wrong Cops" alongside many other exciting offerings, it seems the director found fit to reveal his star on Twitter.

Quentin Dupieux Marilyn Manson

Well, in some alternate Quentin Dupieux universe, full of non-sequiturs and ironic detachment, this completely makes sense. Fresh off news of the Cannes Directors' Fortnight line-up earlier today, which listed Dupieux's short film "Wrong Cops" alongside many other exciting offerings, it seems the director found fit to reveal his star on Twitter.

“Wrong Cops (Chapter 1) starring Marilyn Manson!” tweeted Dupieux earlier today, raising a number of questions with just one sentence. The notion of additional short films based in the project's world, the ambiguity as to whether the film ties in with his festival film “Wrong” which premiered at Sundance in January, as well as just that casting announcement in general. Manson is actually no stranger to acting, having taken roles in “Party Monster,” “Jawbreaker,” and David Lynch's “Lost Highway,” so he's more than capable of handling whatever out-there material Dupieux has thrown his way.

Details on the 13-minute “Wrong Cops,” which also stars Jen Nikolaisen, remain tight-lipped at the moment, but as we creep toward the much-anticipated start to the Director's Fortnight on May 17th, more on the film should be revealed.
