A new feature film, titled "Hesher," is set to open in theaters on May 16, 2011 in which the main character was reportedly inspired by late Metallica bassist Cliff Burton - who tragically passed away on September 27, 1986 in a vehicle accident. A trailer for the film, which features Metallica's music throughout, can be found in the player below. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays the title character, commented on Metallica's response to the film by saying;
"They dug the movie. It was a real honor and I took a lot of inspiration for this character from the basis of some of their early albums [and] this guy named Cliff Burton, who played on 'Master Of Puppets' and 'Ride The Lightning'. And when the band saw it, they were like, 'You know what?! He reminds us of Cliff,' and we didn't even tell them that's what we were going for. And they let us use their songs and I was actually moved because I grew up headbanging to Metallica."
