Metallica Coming To A Theater Near You
January 16, 2013


Metallica
It's no secret that Metallica has been working on a 3-D movie project for quite a while now. The movie was filmed over three nights of live shows in Vancouver in August of 2012, and the band has been working with director Nimród Antal and a team of editors to pull all the pieces together. Now, Metallica has announced on their website that the film, titled Metallica Through The Never, will be coming to theatres on August 9.

"We're also proud to announce that we will be teaming up with independent film marketing and distribution company Picturehouse to help us spread the love in theatres," reads the posting from the band. "Like your friends in 'Tallica, Picturehouse is truly independent, take big chances and often think outside of the box. Founder Bob Berney has overseen the releases of two of the most successful independent films ever, My Big Fat Greek Wedding and The Passion of the Christ... It goes without saying that we are really just getting rolling here and will have many more updates for you. And of course, we can't wait for you to see the film!"

The movie will be part performance and part fiction. According to a press release, Metallica Through The Never is described as "a feature film starring members of the iconic rock band and Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-Man 2). DeHaan plays a young band crew member who is sent out on an urgent mission while the band is playing a rousing live set in front of a sold-out crowd and unexpectedly finds his world turned completely upside down."

Most recently, Metallica announced that they went independent by launching their own label, Blackened Recordings. The label is now the home of all of Metallica's current albums and videos along with all future releases. The band has reportedly been working on some new tunes, although it seems like a new LP is probably still a little far off. Back in September, guitarist Kirk Hammett told Rolling Stone, "Right now, we're kind of preoccupied with dealing with this 3-D movie that we shot up in Canada last month. So that's kind of taking our time right now – that's the priority, to deal with that. But once we're done with that, we're going to start hunkering down and putting riffs together. That's all going to happen soon."
