Film School Rejects talked to James Cameron about the upcoming new Heavy Metal film. From Kevin Eastman himself,
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 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.”
So we’ve got Zack Snyder, James Cameron, David Fincher, Gore Verbinski, and three other directors (possibly Rob Zombie). So this is either going to be the greatest movie ever made, or it will never get made, since half of the directors are notorious perfectionists. Still, if they can make this happen, you know where I’ll be!
