Heavy Metal

David Fincher is still working on the in-development 2010 animated project, a re-invention of the 1981 original. Fincher is not the only segment director mentioned in the project both Zack Snyder and Gore Verbinski are included. The film will be a series of animated segments. Each, presumably done by a different director. Fincher says: "We're still trying to get that made… I'm ready to bat clean-up. I'm ready to do whatever story no one else wants to do. We have like twenty-four stories and artwork for it. Zack Snyder is picking one and I think Verbinski has one that he likes. We're seeing where it ends up. I have time to do one or two and I have dibs on eight or nine, so somewhere in there we'll figure it out if we can ever get the money together."
