Metallica take leap into 3D

Film to channel the power of the band's live shows.
The band start filming this summer
Metal legends Metallica are to shoot a 3D film this summer.

The band, who have sold 100 million albums worldwide, described their leap into the world of 3D as an "all-new, totally crazy world for us".

Details are still being finalised but Hungarian director Nimrod Antal, behind 2010's blockbuster Predators, is set to make the film, which should be in cinemas next year.

The band's drummer Lars Ulrich said: "I've been a fan of Nimrod's since his first Hungarian film, Kontroll, showed up at Cannes in 2004 and blew everybody away.

"Five minutes of meeting him I was addicted to his enthusiasm, his take on the creative process and his 'thinking outside of the box' personality. Let's get on with it!!!"

Antal said the film would "harness the power" of Metallica's live shows.

The band are set to headline this summer's Download Festival as well as playing a number of other European shows.
