Gigantic Pictures will soon release "FIX", an "uncensored movie about Ministry". The film will be a documentary about the interaction with Ministry onstage and offstage their tour. Judging by the people involved and the age of the musicians, I think it might be the Filth Pig tour. The film will also feature interviews with Trent Reznor, Jonathan Davis, Maynard Keenan, Dave Navarro and many more.
You can go to http://www.fixtheministrymovie.com/ to watch a trailer. If you register, you get a free Paul Barker track for download. It's pretty good.
I wonder who directed this movie and if they have any affiliation with 13th Planet. Either way, the film looks like it might have some entertaining scenes of drunken/high debauchery.

"Americans MINISTRY gained during their long music career enormous success. They were nominated for Grammy Awards several times, in 2000 they lost only with Black Sabbath.

Ministry released a new album called "The Last Sucker" and goes on their last world's tour."
Information regarding Ministry's Al Jourgensen suing his ex-bandmate Paul Barker has recently been circulating the Internet. According to the official Los Angeles Superior Court website, case number SC094122, a case for tortious interference regarding contractual agreement has been filed by Al Jourgensen against Paul Barker and Spurburn music. Although documented in legal archives, this case has not yet been publicly confirmed by either side.
Paul Barker left Ministry in 2003, following the release of the album Animositisomina, citing musical differences and personal problems as the reason for this decision. The split seemed amiable and only now is evidence pointing to the contrary beginning to emerge. Since leaving Ministry, Barker has recorded an album as Pink Anvil and joined the band USSA.
Ministry mainman Al Jourgensen has revealed to Germany's Metal Hammer magazine that the group's previously announced "final" album, "The Last Sucker", will be followed by an all-covers release, tentatively due in 2008. According to Jourgensen, the as-yet-untitled effort will contain "a lot of different cover songs from various bands," some of which have already been released on Ministry albums over the years.
Ministry's upcoming covers album is expected to include the following tracks, among others:
Previously released songs:
"Supernaut" by Black Sabbath (from "Supernaut" EP)
"Lay Lady Lay" by Bob Dylan (from "Filth Pig")
"Recently the 13th Planet compound was visited by aliens from Amen and Fear Factory Casey Chaos (Amen) and Burton Bell (FF) hooked up with Uncle Al in the studio last week for some jammin'!!!" Burton C Bell is going to appear as a guest vocalist on Ministry's upcoming final record "Last Sucker". A final tour is set to follow and then Al Jourgensen will focus on running his label and recording the long overdue Buck Satan record.
