The Stephen King adaptations and re-adaptations keep coming, and due out next year is a 10-episode series of his post-apocalyptic pandemic epic, The Stand, which will air on CBS All Access. The massive, doorstopper of a book also spawned a 1994 miniseries on ABC, and the new version is set to begin filming in September. Showrunner Josh Boone has confirmed some of the casting through his Instagram, including James Marsden as Stu Redman, Amber Heard as Nadine Cross, Henry Zaga as Nick Andros, and Odessa Young as Frannie Goldsmith. Marilyn Manson will also have a role to play, as he mentions in a new interview with Revolver, where he discusses working with Shooter Jennings on his upcoming album, and on a cover of The Doors’ “The End,” also for the series. Wonder who he’ll be playing – Randall Flagg? The Trashcan Man?

Speaking of that new album, here’s what Manson had to say to Revolver about it:

I’m in a mode in life where I wanted to tell stories with this record, and it’s sort of like a wax museum of my thoughts, a study of the chamber of horrors in my head. All the romance and hope you can have in the world, here in the End Times where it can be a different kind of apocalypse for each person listening to the record. I tried to paint it with words, and Shooter with sounds, so you can see and hear all of your longing, your passion and despair. That’s sort of a dramatic explanation of it. [Laughs] But it is full of drama. I wouldn’t compare it to any of my other records, but you hear a bit of everything — it’s like I’ve focused everything into one spot, finally.

Manson is also set to appear on The New Pope, an upcoming HBO series, and he’s hitting the road on another Twins of Evil tour with Rob Zombie this summer.
