Dane DeHaan, one of the stars of Metallica‘s eagerly anticipated 3-D movie, Metallica Through The Never, has compared the film with Pink Floyd‘s The Wall and billed it as unlike anything he has seen before.
DeHaan has shared his thoughts on the movie with Collider.com, which is set for release later this year. The movie combines concert footage with a fictional narrative. The storyline follows a young band crew member (played by DeHaan) who is sent out on an urgent mission while Metallica is tearing it up on stage, and unexpectedly finds his world turned upside down.
“It’s, in a way, like a 3-D concert movie but there’s also this narrative that ties together all the footage,” DeHaan said. “It’s gonna be, first of all, really rock and roll and really ‘Metallica’ for lack of a better word; they don’t hold back at all.
“But during the concert, I basically go on this trip as a roadie for the band and I pretty much literally have to go through hell and back to take it back to them, and all of this is going on during the concert, so it all ties together really kind of beautifully and uniquely.
“It’s unlike anything that I’ve ever seen before; it’s almost like a concert movie meets ‘The Wall’ meets METALLICA… We filmed it last August.”
Metallica Through The Never opens in the States on 9th August, 2013.
