Last October it was rumored that long-time band Metallica were planning on making their own 3D film. It was not known what the film would entail or when it would be made- all people knew was that the band hired producer Charlotte Huggins and were looking for a director. Now, the band have confirmed via their website that yes in deed they are planning such a thing, and it is scheduled to be released in 2013.

According to the article, Metallica posted the following statement on their website earlier today:

As you know, we generally make it a policy not to comment on gossip or rumors, but we also pride ourselves on being first with 'TALLICA news. So, with that said, the more astute of you may have noticed a couple of mentions in trade publications, and most recently in the new issue of Rolling Stone, that a METALLICA 3D movie is in the works. We're here to tell you that, yes, there is indeed a 3D project in the very early stages of production! We wish we could tell you more right now, but we don't have all the finer points nailed down just yet. What we can tell you is that we are planning on being in a theatre near you sometime in 2013 and as you hear us say ever so often, this will be the space for all the details as we finalize them.

Welcome to 2012...we're pretty psyched about the year ahead!


METALLICA's critically acclaimed 2004 documentary "Some Kind Of Monster", directed by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky ("Brother's Keeper", "Paradise Lost"), offered a revealing behind-the-scenes look at METALLICA as they confronted personal demons and their relationships with each other during the making of the band's 2003 album "St. Anger".

3D movies are becoming quite popular these days, and most likely sooner or later all movies will be made this way, so any film, let alone 3D, made by Metallica should be rockin'. Hopefully more details about the future film will come about soon.

What do you think of this? What kind of 3D movie would you make?
