    I wish he'd hurry up and make Rendezvous with Rama.

    The film will consist of eight or nine individual animated segments, each of which will be directed by a different helmer.

    Sold!

    As I said on the front page, this is a pretty awesome development. I hope this Heavy Metal is as good as it can be with talent like Fincher behind it.

    I love how it's going to have individual segments like the original, didn't care for Heavy Metal 2 that much.

    Wonder who's going to be on the soundtrack, the music has always been a big plus with these movies.

    It does hold up today, I'm going to listen to it now.

    I'll be happy with the music as long as the idea of Heavy Metal isn't: MCR, The Killers, The Used, Fall Out Boy, etc.

    But Fincher has a good taste in music (NIN fan fo' sho.) So I'm sure he'll get some good tuned :up:

    Now the question is, will this fly today? Heavy Metal mag is still out, but it's mostly a cult thing nowadays. F.A.K.K. was just a direct to cable thing last time I saw it, and mostly Julie Strain's old ass.

    sounds awesome. heavy metal was a huge influence on my young life (i saw it way before i should have)...

    but the news that has me even more excited is this

    "Fincher recently became attached to direct Paramount's adaptation of the Charles Burns graphic novel "Black Hole..."

    one of my favorite books ever.

    I never take anything at face value anymore. Until you see actual footage or notes about a movie, I consider it non-existent.
