A trailer for thriller Blood Orange starring Iggy Pop has been released.

The film, which was written and directed by Toby Tobias, also stars Kacey Barnfield, Ben Lamb and Antonio Magro, is described as being about ‘an ageing rock star living with his beautiful and promiscuous young wife Isabelle. Into their peculiar paradise comes a dangerous ex-lover hell-bent on revenge.”

It’s due out on May 17.

Later this year Pop will appear in Bjorn Tagemose’s “loudest silent movie on Earth” Gutterdammerung alongside Lemmy, Grace Jones, Henry Rollins, Josh Homme, Jesse Hughes, Justice, Slash, and more. It’ll be screened at this year’s Download festival.

Meanwhile Total Chaos: The Story of The Stooges, a book detailing the history of Pop’s time with the band in his own words, is to launch later this year. It’s available for pre-order.

Pop is currently on tour in support of last release Post Pop Depression with Josh Homme.
