Heavy Metal Remake Gets Cameron, Fincher, Verbinski, Snyder, Insanity


How do you cram four A-list directors into one blog post title? Well, report a statement from Kevin Eastman, Ninja Turtles co-creator and the man behind the modern day remake of blood and boobies extravaganza, Heavy Metal.

“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.”

Supposedly each of the directors will get their own segment of the film (I thought they were each doing an entire film too when I first read that statement), and then they’ll all be compiled for one giant sci-fi action super orgy, the likes of which the world has never known. I can buy Snyder and Fincher are involved, but Verbinski waffles back and forth between projects on a day to day basis, and if  James Cameron does get around to shooting his segment, it probably won’t be until around 2018.

But if all this does come to pass, I don’t even need to explain how epic that will be.

But no Tarantino?
