Darren Aronofsky, the director behind such films as Requiem For A Dream, The Wrestler and most recently, the Academy Award winning, Black Swan, is to direct a music video for the song, "Iced Honey," which comes from the collaboration album from Lou Reed and Metallica.

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich said in a statement Thursday that working with Reed and Aronofsky is "living the dream." Ulrich called making this album and video a monumental chapter in his life.

"As if making a record with Lou Reed is not enough, now I get to make a video with Darren Aronofsky, who has been among my very favourite filmmakers since his first movie, Pi."

The avant-garde Reed said he shares Ulrich’s affection for that film as well and he hoped the video “can be his next Black Swan.”
