Shock rocker Marilyn Manson is set to play ALICE IN WONDERLAND author LEWIS CARROLL in a self-penned movie.

The DISPOSABLE TEENS hitmaker is also planning to produce 'art house horror' film PHANTASMAGORIA - THE VISIONS OF LEWIS CARROLL.

Producer ALAIN DE LA MATA says, "What people expect from Manson, they're going to get here."

Manson will attend Berlin's European Film Market in February (06), in the hope he will find funding for the $4.2 million (GBP2.3 million) movie.

De la Mata adds, "He didn't want to wait for Cannes to do this, he's ready now."
