Julian Doyle's Chemical Wedding, written by Bruce Dickinson, frontman for the heavy metal band Iron Maiden, has been acquired by Warner Bros. for U.K. and Ireland distribution rights, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film, billed as a supernatural horror thriller, wrapped principal photography on September 4th and stars Simon Callow as a reincarnation of Aleister Crowley, once dubbed "the most evil man in Britain."

Veteran Monty Python second-unit director Doyle is directing the picture, which centers on Crowley, a major Edwardian figure and a scandalous character brought back to life by a shy, stuttering Professor Haddo (Callow).
