Today, the first still from the Nimrod Antal (VACANCY, PREDATORS) helmed METALLICA THROUGH THE NEVER surfaced, featuring the next Harry Osborne himself, Dane Dehaan (CHRONICLE, THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES) as “Trip”. The film sounds as weirdly awesome as it gets, as it’s one part 3-D concert, another part narrative film, the project sounds interesting to say the least.
“Starring Metallica, a cast of thousands of their fans and breakout star Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-Man 2), METALLICA THROUGH THE NEVER is written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Nimrod Antal (Predators, Kontroll) and produced by former IMAX film producer Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth). The film marries groundbreaking footage and editing techniques with a compelling narrative, in which a band crew member (played by DeHaan) is sent out on a mission during Metallica’s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. While on this mission, he unexpectedly has his life turned completely upside down.”
METALLICA THROUGH THE NEVER hits theaters beginning August 9th via Picturehouse Films. Just for good measure, here’s one of my favorite Metallica songs, what are your favorites?.
