Movie To Be Made About Soulfly's Max Cavalera

A biographical movie about the life of legendary metal vocalist Max Cavalera has been confirmed by Universal Pictures. The man behind such bands as Sepultura and Soulfly will be portrayed on the silver screen by the legendary John Goodman with his younger brother Igor being played by Steve Buscemi. The movie is entitled, "Morbid Visions: The Story Max Cavalera" and is scheduled to begin shooting in early May. Rumours are already spreading like wildfire as to who else will appear in the movie. Johnny Depp is the hot rumour for the role of Andreas Kisser, the dashing villain who stole Max's band along with vocalist Derrick Green, who is rumoured to be played by Eddie Murphy. Other actors tipped for the movie include Denis Leary, Bob Hoskins and Sylvester Stallone as the singing voice of Max Cavalera.

The movie will be directed by Steven Spielberg's non-union Mexican equavilant Senor Spielbergo, who was originally offered the choice between directing "Morbid Visions" and the new Lord Of The Rings movie, "The Lord Of The Rings: The One Where There's Two Saurons, Frodo Gets Hypnotized By An Evil Wizard and Gandalf Fights A Lava Snake." When asked why he chose to direct Morbid Visions, he responded: "Sepultura es beuno, sequels es el diablo."

You can view a teaser trailer for the movie at YouTube.

Senor Spielbergo!! Man, I love the Simpsons...

I also loved the actor choices and "The Lord Of The Rings: The One Where There's Two Saurons, Frodo Gets Hypnotized By An Evil Wizard and Gandalf Fights A Lava Snake."

Good one, Oz.

Now playing: Carcass - "Tools of the Trade"

lmao!! That was great. Had me going for a sec. Now I wish they would do it. John Goodman no longer has a career maybe he'd actually go for it. What do you think? lol

Nice try metal underground. John Goodman would be a sh**ty Max but Johnny Depp would be interesting as Andreas.

Weak for Rick Rolling you or the story was weak? For me I just wanted an excuse to Rick Roll people and the idea of John Goodman as Max Cavalera made me laugh too much. I didn't think anyone would believe this, that's why I posted it later in the day as opposed to the Bruce leaving Maiden kinda stories.
