Ghost frontman Tobias Forge said he is planning a Ghost film in a new Revolver interview, and compared doing it sooner before the band was fully established to an embarrassing bedroom accident. He wants to shoot the film before the end of 2019.
“If it wasn’t for the fact that I ended up finally being a musician, the one thing I really, really want to do in my life is cinema,” Forge says. “Any chance I can have to do that, I’m definitely grabbing it.”
“Most films about bands are biographical, and I see no reason to tell our story yet. It’s a little bit like premature ejaculation. You have to have a career first and then you can tell the real story, so that was never an option. And when you yank away that, what do you have? Well, that would be a fictional story.”
“The cog wheels are turning on that one. We’re just trying to figure out a lot of the practicalities. Making a film is a big endeavor. Another problem that I have had over the course of my career is that I don’t have a shit-ton of time. I am also a father of two kids and I’m married. I try to not to break my back. I’ve been so close so many times to overworking and I said yes to everything just because I was so keen on not losing momentum. I’ve learned over the years that it’s really important not to do everything at once.”
