Are You Excited About a 3D Metallica Film?

By March 12, 2012

Follow me on:

Near the end of last year, word got out that Metallica were developing a 3D film about themselves, although it wasn't clear if it was going to be a biopic, a documentary, or what exactly. Last week, we learned that the movie "will be a marriage of narrative and concert and will star the five members of Metallica: James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, Robert Trujillo, and the fans," according to a press release announcing the hiring of director Nimrod Antal (Predators) for the project. So we still don't know a lot about this movie.

My question is this: Are you excited about a 3D Metallica film? Personally, it's hard to say. Since the band members aren't saying anything beyond that cryptic plot description, it's entirely possible it could be their version of A Hard Day's Night. They've already done a straight documentary once before with the regrettable Some Kind of Monster, so the mixture of concert film and narrative with this new project is intriguing. But what's the "narrative" going to be? Will the members of Metallica be acting? Or will the narrative concern other characters, say, trying to get to a Metallica concert? Whatever, this movie is, it'll be coming our way Summer 2013.

OK, enough of my ramblings. It's time for you to cast your vote.
