Macaulay Culkin considering Disco Blood Bath
In an interview with New York magazine, former child star Macaulay Culkin (currently appearing in Broadways Madame Melville) says hes considering taking the role of flamboyant club kid Michael Alig in the film adaptation of the true-crime book Disco Blood Bath. The openly gay Alig, who was the subject of the award-winning documentary Party Monster by gay filmmakers Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (The Eyes of Tammy Faye), came from the Midwest and turned himself into a fixture of Manhattans club scene in the 80s; when a gay drug dealer named Angel disappeared, Alig bragged to friends that hed killed him. Alig was later convicted of the crime and is now serving a life sentence in prison. The film, which would be Bailey and Barbatos narrative film debut, is still in development. In the meantime, Culkin claims to just want to meet people, live life, and spread my pixie dust throughout the world.
