The rumors have been confirmed! According to Metallica and Loudwire.com, Metallica is currently working on a 3D film set to hit the theaters sometime in 2013.

Details at this point are still sketchy but here is what Metallica wrote on their official website:

Happy New Year!!! As you know, we generally make it a policy not to comment on gossip or rumors, but we also pride ourselves on being first with 'Tallica news. So, with that said, the more astute of you may have noticed a couple of mentions in trade publications, and most recently in the new issue of Rolling Stone, that a Metallica 3D movie is in the works. We're here to tell you that, yes, there is indeed a 3D project in the very early stages of production! We wish we could tell you more right now, but we don't have all the finer points nailed down just yet. What we can tell you is that we are planning on being in a theatre near you sometime in 2013 and as you hear us say ever so often, this will be the space for all the details as we finalize them.

Welcome to 2012... we're pretty psyched about the year ahead!

 

This will be Metallica's second movie project following up 2004's hit 'Some Kind of Monster.'
