Skinny Puppy Lead to Sing Opera in Bousman’s ‘Repo!’

Bloody-Disgusting has learned exclusively this morning that Nivek Ogre (aka Kevin Graham Ogilvie; pictured inside) – the lead singer of the band “Skinny Puppy” – is in final talks to star in Darren Lynn Bousman’s hotly anticipated horror-musical, Repo! The Genetic Opera, which begins production September 10 in Toronto, Canada. He joins Alexa Vega, Bill Moseley, Paul Sorvino and the luscious Paris Hilton. “Repo!” focuses on a cruel entrepreneur who creates genetically perfect organs that everybody needs in 2056, and who is content to send in a repo man if the recipient can’t make payments. Lionsgate will release this unique blend of genres in theaters on April 25, 2008.
