The forthcoming 3D film, "Metallica Through The Never", is being described by one of its actors as "a concert movie meets 'The Wall' meets Metallica."
"It's in a way like a 3D concert movie but there's also this narrative that ties together all the footage," actor Dane DeHaan ("Chronicle", "The Amazing Spider-Man 2") tells Collider.com.
"It's gonna be, first of all, really rock and roll and really 'Metallica' for lack of a better word; they don't hold back at all. But during the concert, I basically go on this trip as a roadie for the band and I pretty much literally have to go through hell and back to take it back to them, and all of this is going on during the concert so it all ties together really kind of beautifully and uniquely. It's unlike anything that I've ever seen before; it's almost like a concert movie meets [Pink Floyd's] 'The Wall' meets Metallica... We filmed it last August."
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.
Written and directed by Nimród Antal ("Kontroll", "Predators"), the movie is scheduled to make its theatrical debut on August 9, reports Hennemusic.
The project is the first new release via Picturehouse, the full-service independent film marketing and distribution company started in 2005, which is reopening its doors with founder Bob Berney at the helm.
