It looks like David Fincher’s idea of creating an animated anthology film based on science fiction/fantasy magazine Heavy Metal is coming closer to fruition, and with names like James Cameron and Zack Snyder attached to it, it’s no wonder why.
According to Deadline New York Fincher’s version will consist of eight or nine individual animated segments, each by a different director, all of them infused with the spirit of the erotic and violent storylines that defined the magazine. [Along with Cameron and Snyder] Fincher is directing one himself. And, oh yeah, the whole thing will be 3D animation.
Back when Nomad was on the set of Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2, producer Andy Gould mentioned there had been a brief discussion about Rob’s possible involvement in Heavy Metal (read that story here), but things had gotten quiet. We have to say Zombie would probably be a good fit, but since the project is still in search of both financing and distribution, there’s no telling when things will start happening and who else will be tapped to direct the segments.
