Canadian heavy metal legend THOR (a.k.a. Jon Mikl Thor) is currently starrring starring in the movie "The Intercessor", a sci fi, horror thriller which is filming on location through September in Vancouver, B.C. and London, Ontario. The story is based on a concept of Thor's and will feature some very unique special effects.
The film will feature the adventures of the Intercessor, an ancient being who is on a quest to save the last innocent souls on Earth from the evil Mephisto and his allies the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The Intercessor is able to travel through the dreams of a young girl in his fight against her enemies.
Anthony Veilleiux, who has previously worked on such films as "Resident Evil II" and "Gingersnaps", will bring the undead in this film to life through movie makeup magic. Thor's company Chompa Productions/VMS Ltd. is also producing the film along with Grimbrothers Productions and Struggling Productions has brought on board a very talented crew.
Directing will be Benn McGuire and screen writers Chris Allen and Jacob Windatt. The film will also feature upcoming actress Melissa Ellingham. Amsell Entertainment of Studio City, California will represent the movie worldwide and will premeire the movie at the American Film Market in Santa Monica in November.
Alan Solomon, president of Amsell Entertainment, is reported to be very excited about the new movie and will feature it as a top product at AFM. As well as a powerful theatrical performance on screen the film boasts a "stellar" soundtrack including: THE MELVINS, JOE PRESTON, GOAT HORN, GIRL NOBODY, THE TRAINED BEARS, EMPYRIA, NEW HORIZON and more.
Also, the buzz still continues to grow from the release of Thor's collaboration with Mick Hoffman on "Beastwomen From The Center of the Earth" — the fantasy concept album/comic book released early this summer. The album has drawn in previous fans along with legions of new followers with its diverse arrangements and vast differences from previous Thor releases.
THOR will be recording a new album, entitled "Thor Against The World", in Los Angeles this month. Thor will be backed by L.A. three-piece SWEET JUSTICE, which features Frank Meyer (THE STREETWALKIN' CHEETAHS, WAYNE KRAMER, CHEETAHS CHROME, SYLVAIN SYLVAIN) on guitar, Bruce Duff (ADZ, 45 GRAVE, JEFF DAHL) and Chris Marwkood (ex-BELLRAYS, BLARE BITCH PROJECT), whose debut album was recently released on Real O Mind Records. Meyer and Duff make up the production team Messiaz, who have been producing everything from hip hop to hard rock at their own ToneDuff Studios in Hollywood (Messiaz will be producing the debut studio album by DEAD BOYS founder Cheetah Chrome later this year). Also scheduled to appear on the album, which promises to be a lean, mean, stripped-down hard rock affair, are keyboardist Brian Kehew (AIR, MOOG COOKBOOK) and punk queen Texas Terri.
