Förra året började Metallica samarbeta med regissören Nimród Antal inför deras kommande 3D-film.

Lars Ulrich har nyligen kommenterat processen, han säger, ”There are similarities to Led Zeppelin’s The Song Remains The Same (1976) (a companion to the live album of the same name). There are four members in Led Zeppelin, four members in Metallica, it’s a full-length movie, and there’s a lot in this film that does not take place onstage. The major difference is that the stuff that takes place offstage in the Metallica movie does not feature any members of Metallica. It’s two separate worlds — a Metallica show and a story that unfolds in a parallel universe — and at some point they intertwine.”

Ulrich tillägger att det kommande albumet kommer vara en fortsättning på Death Magnetic, ”Death Magnetic is one motherfucker of a record. There aren’t many Metallica records that sound as good as Death Magnetic four years after they were made. With a lot of the other records, there were questions: ’Why did we do that?’ or ’What was going on there?’ or ’Why didn’t somebody say to turn the snare on?’ I don’t feel like that with Death Magnetic. What we’re doing now certainly sounds like a continuation.”

It would stun me if the record came out in 2013. We’ve got to finish this 3D movie, which is what we’re doing right now.”
