Metallica goes 3D

Nimrod Antal to helm pic featuring heavy metal mainstay

Helmer Nimrod Antal has been tapped to direct a 3D film featuring thrash metal mainstays Metallica. The as-yet-untitled project will be produced by Charlotte Huggins.

According to the announcement, the film will combine concert footage with narrative elements starring the band’s four members, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo. The film will begin shooting in August, aiming for a summer 2013 release.

First emerging on the fest scene with “Kontroll” in 2003, Antal has also directed English-language actioners “Vacancy” and “Predators.” Huggins most recently produced “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” earlier this year.

Metallica recently wrapped up a slew of fest dates with fellow ’80s metal giants Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax, followed by an art-rock collaborative release with Lou Reed entitled “Lulu.” The band is also curating its inaugural “Orion Music and More” festival this June in New Jersey.
