METALLICA‘s August 24, August 25 and August 27 concerts at Rogers Arena were shot in 3D for the band’s upcoming feature-film project.
The group earlier in the year tapped award-winning director Nimród Antal to helm the movie. Charlotte Huggins (“Journey To The Center Of The Earth”, “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island”) is producing.
The film 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. It will be released in the summer of 2013.
Antal is best known for writing and directing the Hungarian-language film “Kontroll” (2003) that won several awards, including the Award of Youth at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival and the Gold Hugo prize at the Chicago International Film Festival. He also received a European Film Award nomination for Best Director. His credits include “Vacancy”, starring Kate Beckinsale and Luke Wilson, and “Armored”, starring Matt Dillon and Laurence Fishburne. In 2010 he was hired by Robert Rodriguez to direct “Predators”, featuring Adrien Brody.
Ulrich did hint to Rolling Stone a few months back what the film might be like, saying, “Imagine if you took [LED ZEPPELIN‘s concert film] ‘The Song Remains The Same’, which is 75 percent concert, 25 percent other stuff, and flipped it around. And all the non-concert footage, instead of being about the band members, is a story that unfolds, set against the backdrop of the concert.”
