Metallica Confirms 3D Film In the Works

Just when you though Disney had the patent on 3D movies, Metallica decides make one of their own. The metal icons confirmed the news earlier today with an statement via their official website:

“Happy New Year!!! 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 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.”

No other details of the movie have been revealed, but the band did announce earlier this week that they will be release the 4-track EP “Beyond Magnetic” on CD worldwide on January 31st.

Are you ready for Metallica in 3D?
