Nimrod Antal to Direct 3D Feature Film for Metallica

Collider says

Nimrod Antal, the director of Predators and Vacancy, has been tapped by legendary metal band, Metallica, to direct their 3D feature film. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band is looking to make the project a blend of narrative and concert footage which will star James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, Robert Trujillo, and, of course, the legions of Metallica fans. The film is expected to shoot this coming August with a release planned for the summer of 2013. Going thirty plus years strong, Metallica is one of the biggest bands on the planet, starting as one of the founding four of thrash metal along with Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. They’ve sold more than 100 million albums in their career and have influenced at least that many fans. Details are short on the project so far, but with a history as rich in ups and downs as Metallica’s, the story should pretty much write itself. Hit the jump for comments from Metallica’s Ulrich and from Antal himself, along with a bonus Metallica music video shot by Darren Aronofsky.

I was just thinking we need to see more ugly people in 3D on the big screen and here we are.

Love Metallica, my absolute favorite band, but this "film" sounds like it is just another one of those "justin bieber" things. Basically a documentary you spend 18 dollars to see in "3D"....

I haven't really agreed with a lot of their recent decisions, sounds like they are too interested in money.

They've been like that since the late 90s. It's partially why I stopped listening to them in the first place. I've since started to listen to them again in the last 2yrs.

I just don't like how they are releasing those new songs that totally kick arse, and are re releasing everything as vinyl for like 100 bucks. I guess it's cool, but the whole fan connection seems to be gone....

My original anger towards them stemmed from all the frivolous lawsuits they were launching against everyone from ppl using Napster to companies whose names sounded closes to "Metallica"

Both of their fans just got excited.
