Paramount Pictures has signed David Fincher to direct “Heavy Metal”, an animated movie which will be adapted from the magazine that you buy from your local newstands. “Heavy Metal” is a fantasy epic comic book that has dark, violent, and very sexual storylines. The comics were known to have lots of nudity. Basically, a magazine comic made directily for adults. Publisher and founder of “Heavy Metal” magazine Leonard Mogel started the company back in 1977. The company has been here with us for a little over 30 years and still going strong to this very day.
The animated film “Heavy Metal” will include 8 or 9 different segments or different stories, David Fincher is signed to direct one of the segments, not the entire film. Considering the film will be adapted from the “Heavy Metal” comic, it will have an R rating because of it’s violent and sexual content. Paramount Pictures will start searching for other directors for the other segments shortly.
If this animated movie will be a big success, hopefully they can make a live action version of “Heavy Metal” comics.
I was a fan of the “Heavy Metal” comics, I used to read ’em and buy ’em all the time. They used to be my favorite to read.
