Metallica expect to start work on the movie in August and release mid 2013.

“I’ve been a fan of Nimród’s since his first Hungarian film, Kontroll, showed up at Cannes in 2004 and blew everybody away,” said Metallica’s Lars Ulrich. “I’ve watched with excitement his career in Hollywood blossom over the last few years. Within five minutes of meeting him I was addicted to his enthusiasm, his take on the creative process and his ‘thinking outside of the box’ personality. Let’s get on with it!!!”

“Metallica has always been a huge part of my life, and it’s an incredible opportunity when we get to work with our heroes,” said Antal. “We are going to harness the powerful and almighty energy of Metallica’s live shows, inject a narrative into it, and shoot it in 3D to elevate the entire experience.”

Antal also worked on the Hubgarian-language film Kontroll in 2003 which won the Award of Youth at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival.

His other credits include Vacancy starring Luke Wilson and Predators featuring Adrien Brody.
