Iggy Pop has been busy of late between releasing and touring his new album, Post Pop Depression, and dictating the Stooges’ history for an upcoming biography. He’ll also be starring in the upcoming thriller Blood Orange, and you can watch one of the trailers today (May 3).
According to the film’s notes, Iggy plays Bill, an aging rockstar who is married to a mysterious young woman named Isabelle. Things hit a boiling point when one of her ex-lovers appears on the scene. There are guns and a very angry Iggy. Written and directed by Toby Tobias, the film also stars Ben Lamb and Kacey Clarke.
Iggy looks to go largely shirtless–his preferred method of dress–in the film, which presents him as a no-nonsense husband out to protect what’s his.
In addition to Blood Orange, Iggy will also appear in Gutterdämmerung this summer, a project being touted as Björn Tagemose’s “loudest silent movie on Earth.” He’s not the only musician attached to the project. Henry Rollins, Josh Homme, Jesse Hughes, Justice, Motörhead’s Lemmy Kilmister, Slash and more will all appear in it (via NME).
Blood Orange hits theaters on May 17. Watch the trailer below:
