Amidst circulating rumors of a pending Metallica 3D movie the band has now checked in with the following update, confirming the production of the film.

"Happy New Year!!! As you know, we generally make it a policy not to comment on gossip or rumors, but we also pride ourselves on being first with Metallica news. So, with that said, the more astute of you may have noticed a couple of mentions in trade publications, and most recently in the new issue of Rolling Stone, that a Metallica 3D movie is in the works.

"We’re here to tell you that, yes, there is indeed a 3D project in the very early stages of production! We wish we could tell you more right now, but we don’t have all the finer points nailed down just yet. What we can tell you is that we are planning on being in a theatre near you sometime in 2013.

"Welcome to 2012. We’re pretty psyched about the year ahead."

What's Next?

They play Lulu in its entirety in 3D. If their ever was an album truly worthy of a 3D makeover it would be LuLu. They're also remaking my favorite and best star wars movie: The phantom Menace in 3d nevertheless. I really want to see the scene where Jar-Jar Binks steps in the poopy...
