You know how you always dreamed of Metallica making a film in 3D? Well, it’s now officially a reality, with the band announcing that they’ll begin shooting this summer for a 3D film due for release in 2013. Metallica will be working with Hungarian director Nimrod Antal, and Lars Ulrich had this to say about the project: “I’ve been a fan of Nimrod’s since his first Hungarian film, Kontroll, showed up at Cannes in 2004 and blew everybody away… 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!” And while it’s unclear what form the film will take (i.e. will it be a behind the scenes documentary? A concert film?), we’re willing to bet good money that it will be a grand spectacle fueled by the band’s high energy performance style and loud metal noise.
