Metallica Announce 3D Movie Project
Metallica have officially confirmed they’re working on a 3D film.
The band have just released the following statement via their website:
‘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 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.’
Metallica have also been talking to Rolling Stone about how things are progressing with the next album.
“We’re about seven, eight songs into it,” says Lars Ulrich. “We do it in rounds. We come up with something, we leave it, go to the next thing, come up with something basic, leave it and circle back around.”
As for the style of the album, this is how guitarist Kirk Hammett feels about it:
“If Death Magnetic was a logical successor to (1988′s) …And Justice For All, the next album will be a heavier Black Album. The stuff we’re coming up with is more groove-oriented, a heavier version of what we were doing in the early 90s.”
