REPO! The Genetic Opera

Here's the trailer for a new rock-opera film that is set for release in April. It looks like a cross between Sweeney Todd and Blade Runner - and if that ain't mondo, I don't know what is!

The movie stars Paul Sorvino, an actor not usually known for his singing, but he got good reviews as the lead in Loesser's The Most Happy Fella at the New York City Opera in 2006. It also features Sarah Brightman (star of The Phantom of the Opera and the ex-Mrs. Lloyd-Webber), Anthony Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Doctor Who, and a very popular Frank N. Furter in the 90s), and 80s rocker Joan Jett (who played Columbia in Rocky Horror on Broadway). It also stars Paris Hilton, but we won't hold that against it.

Thanks to commenter anarchicq for tipping me off!
