A remake of Heavy Metal, the raunchy animated movie about sexy robots and mostly nekkid amazons, has run into trouble. Paramount was developing the animated film, consisting of segments directed by David Fincher (Fight Club) and Kevin Eastman (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), with erotic and violent storylines by Steve Niles (30 Days Of Night) and Joe Haldeman (The Forever War). But Paramount has dropped the project and Fincher and Eastman (current publisher of the Metal comic) are shopping it to other studios. Fincher, meanwhile, is still signed up to direct a movie of Arthur C. Clarke's Rendezvous With Rama, according to IMDB. [Entertainment Weekly]
