ROB ZOMBIE – To Direct Segment In HEAVY METAL Film


TMD has received new EXCLUSIVE details on the new HEAVY METAL film, which is tentatively scheduled to hit theaters in 2012. Expected to start production Summer 2010, the movie will be a $50 million 3D CG animated spectacle based on the magazine. This probably won’t have any stories from the first 1981 movie, however like the first one, it will feature around seven or eight different stories. Each segment will be directed by a different person. The official title to this movie hasn’t been chosen yet. This current title is just a placeholder. Coolest news of all, Den Headz… Rob Zombie has ‘tentatively agreed’ to direct one of the segments!


Director David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club) and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman present this new adaptation of the long-running erotic sci-fi fantasy magazine Heavy Metal to the big screen with this animated anthology. Each collaborator will helm one of seven tales, with other filmmakers heading up the remaining stories. Blur Studios will provide the animation, with its creator, Tim Miller (Rockfish), also accepting a directing role in the Paramount Pictures production.
