Heavy Metal – Kevin Eastman talks about it’s progress

Posted by LiveFor on May 12, 2009


Heavy Metal is a new version of the old animated sci-fi anthology based around the cool comic book anthology. Anthology used twice in one sentence. That could be a record.

Movieweb caught up with Kevin Eastman (he of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) who is producing the film with David Fincher and Tim Miller.

Here is what he had to say about it’s progress:

Right now, David has a grand plan and he’s asked us to sort of keep those cards close to our chest until the right announcement comes out, but what I can tell you is that part of the frustrating part of going through the studio system, which David knows more than Tim (Miller) and I. Guys like Zack Snyder and Gore Verbinski and Mark Osborne have committed to come on board and direct sequences in this. There are three other directors, that I can’t tell you yet, but will be jaw-dropping when we can tell you. David has put together a program that is pretty outstanding and it’s sort of fascinating for guys like Tim and I, who have worked at the studio level, at a number of levels, but never at a David Fincher level. Whereas we would’ve probably agreed to the deal seven versions ago, David is still negotiating and it’s like, ‘Oh my God, we just want to do this movie,’ but, all kidding aside, that’s why we’re working with David. Not only does he have just a brilliant vision, and a great sense of storytelling but he’s very committed to doing this right. We don’t want to spend $50 million and not blow everybody out of the water with this project. I’d guess within the next 30 days would be the official announcement of what’s going on and where it’s going, and then we can talk again.

I am itching to hear more about the directors and animators involved in this film.

Neal Asher is one of the writers and you can read more about his involvement in my interview with him.

Are you looking forward to the Heavy Metal film? What do you want to see in it?
