Yes folks, Jack and Jill did eventually fall down the hill
David ‘The Finch’ Fincher will spearhead a film based on – no, not the animated 80s flick – the 70s sci-fantasy magazine Heavy Metal.
“Heavy Metal” will be stamped by the erotic and violent storylines and images that remain the trademark of a magazine that debuted in the U.S. in 1977. The mag introduced the works of American artists and writers such as Robert Silverberg, Harlan Ellison and H.R. Giger.
The film will consist of eight or nine individual animated segments, each of which will be directed by a different helmer, says Variety.
Fincher will direct one of the segments; Kevin Eastman, the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” co-creator who is now owner and publisher of Heavy Metal, will direct another. So will Tim Miller, whose Blur Studios will handle the animation for what is being conceived as an R-rated, adult-themed feature.
