Are you ready to see Robert Trujillo’s bass bust out into the third dimension?According to Deadline.com, it may become a reality sooner than you think. The site is reporting that Metallica is planning on producing their own 3D film.
Not a lot of details about the project have been released yet, other than that it’s certain to have a guitar-shredding soundtrack. But the rockers have already solicited the talents of producer Charlotte Huggins, who’s been responsible for 3D hits like Journey to the Center of the Earth and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
Metallica is currently in the midst of their 30th anniversary tour and we’re thinking a big screen epic would be a perfect way to cap off the celebration. Perhaps an in-your-face concert movie from one of their thunderous live shows? It’s very possible, but there are also rumors circulating about a metal-heavy cartoon.
Interestingly, band leader James Hetfield has been branching out into animation recently. He’s lent his voice to cartoons like Dave The Barbarian and Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse. So perhaps, a head banging Pixar flick may be on the horizon. We’re sure plenty of details will be revealed within the next few weeks.
