Talk about some very on-brand casting. Dream-pop, dance-pop babe Sky Ferreira has joined the cast of Lords of Chaos, an upcoming biopic about the black-metal scene in early ’90s Norway from Jonas Åkerlund, one of the maestros behind Beyoncé's Lemonade. Deadline reports that Ferreira who recently appeared at David Lynch's Festival of Disruption to reinterpret original Twin Peaks songs will be starring alongside Rory Culkin and Emory Cohen in an as-yet-unannounced role. The film, which is being adapted from the popular book written by Michael Moynihan and Didrik Søderlind, will follow a young Norwegian band called Mayhem that "popularized a form of heavy metal music known as 'True Norwegian Black Metal,' with a flair for publicity, church-burning and even murder." Rock on, Sky.
