Metallica 3D Movie Confirmed
Metallica's official website has confirmed that a 3D movie featuring the band is on the horizon, with a release planned for next year. The statement on the website reads:
"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 theater 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."
According to Deadline.com, Metallica will be self-financing the feature and have already recruited producer Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth, Journey 2: the Mysterious Island).
