This is not a joke. Metallica are developing a 3D movie, which has been described as “a marriage of narrative and concert.” Nimród Antal (director of the recent Predators movie) has signed on to direct the film, with Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth) producing. Shooting begins in August with the aim for a summer 2013 release. Kind of ironic a band that claims that they aren’t a bunch of sell-outs are cashing in on the 3D craze, don’t you think?
I guess the Metallica dudes are getting old, their opportunities for making cash are dwindling and what better way to safeguard your retirement than to do a KISS and sell the fuck out. I can’t wait to download this movie, I won’t pay to see a movie that won’t have any 3D component to it.
