Exclaim reports that Twilight’s Jackson Rathbone has pulled out of the controversial "Lords of Chaos" film adaptation of the book due to scheduling conflicts. Here's an excerpt:
"The worldwide black metal community, long divided by such burning issues as which bands are 'true' and what bands are 'cult,' can now finally unite: Twilight heartthrob Jackson Rathbone will not play infamous black metal trailblazer/recently released prisoner/Burzum kingpin Varg Vikernes in an upcoming movie adaptation of the Lords of Chaos book. Seriously, all the black metallers around the world must be smiling all at once.
"The book — which looks at the ‘90s Norwegian black metal scene, with its church burnings, murders, and prison sentences galore — was released in 1998 and has become a point of contention within black metal, with some claiming it’s exploitative and inaccurate and others claiming it’s a definitive tome."
