Metallica New 3D Film

Metallica Announce Details for 3D Film

Metallica have announced more details about their upcoming 3D movie. Most important, they are hiring award-winning director Nimród Antal to direct. The film will be a marriage of narrative and concert and will star the members of Metallica, as well as the fans. It will begin shooting this August and will be released in the summer of 2013.
“I’ve been a fan of Nimróds since his first Hungarian film, Kontroll, showed up at Cannes in 2004 and blew everybody away,” Metallica’s Lars Ulrich said in a statement. “I’ve watched with excitement his career in Hollywood blossom over the last few years. Within five minutes of meeting him I was addicted to his enthusiasm, his take on the creative process and his ‘thinking outside of the box’ personality. Let’s get on with it!!!”
Metallica has always been a huge part of my life, and it’s an incredible opportunity when we get to work with our heroes,” Antal said. “We are going to harness the powerful and almighty energy of Metallica’s live shows, inject a narrative into it, and shoot it in 3D to elevate the entire experience.”
Antal is best known for writing and directing the Hungarian-language film Kontroll (2003) that won several awards, including the Award of Youth at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival and the Gold Hugo prize at the Chicago International Film Festival. He also received a European Film Award Nomination for Best Director. His credits include Vacancy starring Kate Beckinsale and Luke Wilson, and Armored starring Matt Dillon and Laurence Fishburne. In 2010 he was hired by Robert Rodriguez to direct Predators featuring Adrien Brody.
