Metallica searching for “superfans” to appear in new documentary

  • by

Metallica is calling on its biggest super fans to appear in an upcoming documentary.

The band sent out the invitation posted online from Mercury Studios, reading: ‘Has Metallica impacted the course of your life? Have you done wild things to see the band live? Metallica are looking for their strongest family members! We want your story.’ The accompanying QR code takes fans to a Metallica email address at Mercury Studios, while there is also an online form asking Metallica aficionados a series of questions about their unwavering fandom, with questions including: ‘Why do you feel that you’re different from other Metallica fans?’ and ‘If there was a movie based on your life, what Metallica song or songs would be on the soundtrack and why?’

Casting director Darren C Moore wrote on the Reality TV Casting Calls Facebook page: “Is Metallica your favourite band? Are you a high profile attorney who has been following Metallica since middle school? Did you devote a whole room of your house to Metallica? Do you owe a significant life accomplishment to their music? I’m looking for big personalities, unique characters and unexpected stories from Metallica fans who consider Metallica to be their favourite band, real “5th Member” types. All stories and walks of life are welcome and encouraged to reach out. This is being produced by Metallica and Mercury Studios, Powered by Universal Music Group.”
