British rocker Pete Doherty has landed a new movie role in an upcoming horror film.

The Libertines star made his big screen debut in 2012's Confession of a Child of the Century, and he followed up with a cameo in 2013 drama Rock and Roll F**k'n'Lovely.

Now he has been listed as the leading male in upcoming Australian horror movie The Second Coming (Pt I).

Details of Doherty's role are not known, but a trailer for the film, released online last week (ends02May14), shows various home movie clips of the star at his former apartment in London.
