During a recent interview with Terrie Carr of 105.5 WDHA, Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) revealed that he has written five new movie scripts. Among them is a film titled “Zombie Versus Ninja,” which he is “shopping right now.”
Taylor said the following when asked if he would consider pursuing an acting career:
“I’ve done some movies. I’ve done a handful of them. Honestly, it’s something that would probably make more sense after I’m off the road, which, ironically, here we are. I’ve done a couple of things, and, obviously, with any script that I write, I’ll probably take a little, smaller role and kind of give it to myself. It’s definitely what I’m doing with the script that I’m shopping right now, which is called ‘Zombie Versus Ninja’, and it’s exactly what [the title] implies. And it’s rad. I’m shopping that right now with a group of people who have actually helped me kind of tighten the script up. They’ve got the contacts. We’re kind of doing that right now. But there’s a couple of roles in there that I’ll probably mess with. They’re not the main roles, but they’re just kind of tucked in the background, and people will go, ‘Oh. Hey.’ So it’s stuff like that that interests me.
Actually, I have no real interest in a big movie role. To me, the interesting part is writing the story. The interesting part, for me, is creating the world, and then watching people kind of make that world a reality. That’s what I wanna see.
I always said one of my goals was to see a movie through soup to nuts — from script to pre-pro to post to the screen.”
