GUNS N' ROSES, ROB ZOMBIE, SLIPKNOT Members Guest On 'Repo! The Genetic Opera' Soundtrack

Richard Fortus (GUNS N' ROSES), Rob "Blasko" Nicholson (OZZY OSBOURNE), Shawn "Clown" Crahan (SLIPKNOT), Richard Patrick (FILTER), Stephen Perkins (JANE'S ADDICTION), Ray Luzier (ARMY OF ANYONE, KORN) and Tommy Clufetos (ROB ZOMBIE) are among the musicians that were enlisted to record music for the "Repo! The Genetic Opera" soundtrack. Principal photography for the film was completed last month in Toronto, Canada. The film was produced by Daniel Heffner, Carl Mazzocone, Mark Burg and Oren Koules.

The film was directed by Darren Bousman, a longtime member of the Twisted Pictures and Lionsgate families, having directed the past three installments of the wildly successful "Saw" franchise, including the recent smash hit "Saw IV". Terrence Zdunich and Darren Smith, co-creators of the original New York and Los Angeles stage production upon which the film is based, wrote the film's screenplay, music and lyrics.

Prior to the shoot, a two-month recording of the film's soundtrack and score took place at Extasy Studios in Los Angeles. Japanese musician and composer Yoshiki Haysahi (better known simply as Yoshiki) from the legendary rock band X JAPAN produced the music together with Joe Bishara. Executive Producer Jonathan McHugh, also served as the music supervisor. "This is by far the most ambitious and unique project I've ever worked on," raved McHugh. "The amalgamation of musical genres from pop to heavy metal and rap, to name just a few, really blends together to create one of the most diverse soundtracks in movie history and is destined to modernize the 'rock opera' in a big way."
