New Heavy Metal Movie Directed By James Cameron
It looks like James Cameron is the latest name to sign on as part of the upcoming, new Heavy Metal movie. For the uninitiated, Heavy Metal started out as a magazine containing erotic sci-fi and fantasy illustrations along with anthologies of sci-fi/fantasy stories from various authors. It later became an animated movie containing the same and now it’s being resurrected with segments of the new film to be directed by Hollywood’s biggest, baddest, genre directors.
Here’s what FSR found out about the latest names added to the project from director Kevin Eastman:
Fincher and James Cameron are going to be Co-Executive Producers on the film. Fincher will direct one. Cameron will direct one. Zack Snyder is going to direct one and Gore Verbinski is going to. Mark Osborne and Jack Black from Tenacious D are going to do a comedy segment for the film. Three other directors have agreed but we haven’t signed them, but they’re equally as jaw-dropping.
