Picturehouse has released the first image from director Nimrod Antal’s (Predators) upcoming concert movie/narrative feature hybrid Metallica Through the Never. The film stars Dane DeHaan as a band crew member who is sent out on a mission during a live Metallica concert. DeHaan’s character soon finds that his life has turned completely upside down. The footage of DeHaan’s character is interspersed with actual concert footage, and during Steve’s recent interview with the actor he described the pic as “a concert movie meets The Wall meets Metallica.”

Here’s the official synopsis for Metallica Through the Never:
Starring Metallica, a cast of thousands of their fans and breakout star Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Metallica Through the Never is written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Nimrod Antal (Predators, Kontroll) and produced by former IMAX film producer Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth). The film marries groundbreaking footage and editing techniques with a compelling narrative, in which a band crew member (played by DeHaan) is sent out on a mission during Metallica’s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. While on this mission, he unexpectedly has his life turned completely upside down.
