Filming is about to get underway on the upcoming movie 'Army of the Damned' with Godsmack's Sully Erna playing one of the lead roles. In the film, he's a police sheriff named Bridge who uncovers more than he bargained for when answering a domestic disturbance call. Erna, making his feature film debut, has been taking part in rehearsals and some of the first photos from the film with the singer in his role have surfaced online. They can be seen below.

One of the photos was posted on Godsmack's website, while the second shot is featured on the 'Army of the Damned' Facebook page. The Woodhaven Pictures horror flick is being directed by Tom DeNucci and is expected to start shooting shortly. The film also stars Michael Berryman, Nick Principe and Joey Fatone among others.

Godsmack, despite claiming they were taking 2013 off, have begun booking a few festival dates here and there. Erna just wrapped his own solo tour, but one of the shows, his New Brunswick, N.J. date, has just been rescheduled from April 14 to May 31.
