As previously reported, IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson has written a supernatural horror-thriller inspired by noted occultist Aleister Crowley. Chemical Wedding stars Simon Callow as a reincarnation of Crowley, once dubbed "the most evil man in Britain." Callow's character, Haddo, is a shy, stuttering professor.

The film, which wrapped principal photography Tuesday with Julian Doyle at the helm, will be released in Britain and Ireland by Warner Bros. The studio also has a first-look option on other territories.

Dickinson is not the first rocker to be inspired by Crowley, who died in 1947. LED ZEPPELIN guitarist Jimmy Page was a big collector of Crowley's writings and even bought his Scottish estate. OZZY OSBOURNE, meanwhile, eulogized him in the song 'Mr. Crowley'.
