What kind of movie could bring together the directors of Pirates Of The Carribean, Fight Club, Terminator and Watchmen? According to producer Kevin Eastman, the answer is the upcoming Heavy Metal.
Eastman spilled the beans to Film School Rejects over the weekend that James Cameron, Zack Snyder, Gore Verbinski and David Fincher have signed on to the long-awaited anthology movie spun out of the long-running comic magazine:
I've got breaking news that Fincher and James Cameron are going to be Co-Executive Producers on the film. Fincher will direct one. Cameron will direct one. Zack Snyder is going to direct one and Gore Verbinski is going to. Mark Osborne and Jack Black from Tenacious D are going to do a comedy segment for the film. Three other directors have agreed but we haven't signed them, but they're equally as jaw-dropping. So we're on cloud nine to be working with such an amazing amount of talent.
That's an amazing collection of talent, but we're worried about the fact that there will be another three directors added to the five listed; just how long is this movie going to be? Or, more depressingly, is each segment going to be incredibly short?
