Metallica Team Up With Award Winning Director Nimród Antal For New 3D Movie

[pullquote quote="I've been a fan of Nimróds since his first Hungarian film, Kontroll, showed up at Cannes in 2004 and blew everybody away" credit="Metallica Drummer Lars Ulrich"] In the past few weeks, there has been talk of a 3D [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Metallica[/lastfm] movie being in the works, but not much more information was provided. But today, the band took one step closer to making the movie a reality; announcing that they have recruited the directing services of one of their favorite directors of all time, the legendary Nimród Antal.

[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Metallica[/lastfm]‘s first 3D movie will be a narrative of sorts with concert footage blended in as well. The idea in its simplest form is to make a movie about the five members of[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Metallica[/lastfm]; the first four of course being James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo – with the fifth member of course being the fans.

Director Nimród Antal recently talked about the project saying:

Metallica has always been a huge part of my life, and it’s an incredible opportunity when we get to work with our heroes,” said Antal.  “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.

    It’ll be cool if Jason Newsted was also involved. He was huge for Metallica in the days…
