According to Deadline.com, METALLICA is planning to self-finance a 3D feature film. The band has hired producer Charlotte Huggins (“Journey To The Center Of The Earth” and “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island”) to work on the project, for which a director is still being sought. No further details are currently available.
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”.
In a 2010 interview with Australia’s Herald Sun, METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich stated about “Some Kind Of Monster”, “Every time I see Noel Gallagher [OASIS], he quotes lines from that movie back to me. That thing has taken on a life of its own. I had to live that shit for three fucking years! The whole thing was a mindfuck. I am aware a lot of other musicians seem to have lived a lot of those moments. They weren’t necessarily stupid enough to film them like we were and share them with the rest of the world.”
