Dane DeHaan Talks METALLICA THROUGH THE NEVER; Describes It as “a Concert Movie Meets THE WALL Meets Metallica”

     March 11, 2013


One of the more talented young actors working today that we’re going to be seeing more and more of in the coming years is Dane DeHaan.  The actor first gained notice for his impressive performance on the HBO series In Treatment in 2010, and shined last year in the found footage pic Chronicle.  DeHaan recently landed the coveted role of Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and is absolutely fantastic opposite Daniel Radcliffe in the Sundance hit Kill Your Darlings, which opens later this year, but he recently filmed a rather curious film that involves the band Metallica called Metallica Through the Never.

Steve recently spoke with DeHaan in anticipation of the upcoming crime drama The Place Beyond the Pines, and while we’ll have the full interview available closer to that film’s release, we wanted to share what he had to say about his work in Metallic Through the Never right away.  Written and directed by Nimrod Antal (Predators), the film apparently blurs the lines between concert documentary and narrative feature, and DeHaan talked about the pic’s plot and described it as a cross between a concert film and Pink Floyd’s The Wall.  Hit the jump to read on.

“It’s in a way like a 3D concert movie but there’s also this narrative that ties together all the footage.  It’s gonna be, first of all, really rock and roll and really ‘Metallica’ for lack of a better word; they don’t hold back at all.  But during the concert I basically go on this trip as a roadie for the band and I pretty much literally have to go through hell and back to take it back to them, and all of this is going on during the concert so it all ties together really kind of beautifully and uniquely.  It’s unlike anything that I’ve ever seen before; it’s almost like a concert movie meets The Wall meets Metallica… We filmed it last August.”

The film is scheduled for release on August 9th of this year.  Watch the portion of Steve’s interview with DeHaan regarding Metallica Through the Never below, and look for the full interview on Collider soon.  Click here if you missed what DeHaan had to say about The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
