New details have been revealed about Metallica ’s first 3D feature-film project.  Guitarist Kirk Hammett says that the band has completed filming the project and is just about ready to starting editing the movie.

“We have seen some of the 3D footage and it looks amazing,” Hammett tells ABC News Radio.  “We’re finished filming the concert footage aspect of it and now I think we’re just finishing the storyline that weaves in and out of the concert footage and that should be done and ready and released sometime next year.  We’re hoping for a summer release.”

The guitarist adds that fans shouldn’t expect the upcoming movie to be like any other concert film they’ve ever seen.  “There’s no interviews, there’s no…backstage exclusive footage or anything like that, it is a completely different experience,” he explains.  “There’s been a million concert footage films out there and some of them are just fantastic but we wanted to go a different route and so that’s what we decided to do.”

In other Metallica news, the band will release a live DVD titled Quebec Magnetic , which documents two of the band’s 2009 concerts in Quebec City, on December 10.
