The dudes and dudettes over at Film School Reject got an interview in with Kevin Eastmen where he revealed the new Heavy Metal movie will have James Cameron direct a segment, David Fincher another and Zack Snyder and Gore Verbinski also on board.
I mean, holy fucking shit on a monkey’s testes, does this make the movie the most star-studded (director-wise) movie of all time? Not only that, James Cameron will be executive producing this bitch. I’ve never been sure what the hell an executive-producer does, but if James Cameron is one on a film that film will probably be alright.
I remember watching the original Heavy Metal as a kid late at night on Showtime, awed that animation could be that mature. For awhile it felt like I had gotten away with something for watching it. I’m not an avid reader of the magazine, but I do enjoy picking an issue up every now and then, and for the most part the stories are wild, sex-filled, ultra violent affairs. Just what I wanted.
