Default Metal Hurlant Chronicles aka Heavy Metal - November 2nd (Fr)

As a fan of Heavy Metal (and yes I too have given up on Fincher's long promised remake) seeing this TV series about to hit Hi Def in France has certainly got the old interest level soaring. Let's hope this is English friendly!

If you've been waiting anxiously for a new HEAVY METAL movie that may never come, here is a development that should hold you over: WE Productions, Humanoids and Panini U.K. Media have unveiled the star talent on board for the sci-fi adventure METAL HURLANT CHRONICLES, which is being developed as a live-action TV series...(This is where I tell you that "Metal Hurlant" was the French comic anthology that ultimately spawned the U.S. version, which we know as "Heavy Metal".)

THE METAL HURLANT CHRONICLES will star Rutger Hauer, Scott Adkins (The Expendables 2), Michael Jai White, Joe Flanigan (Stargate Atlantis, Warehouse 13, CSI) and James Marsters (Buffy, Angel, Smallville, Torchwood). Further cast announcements will be made at the end of the year.

The first two seasons, each comprised of twelve 30-minute episodes, will be delivered in April 2012 and November 2012, respectively. Directed by Guillaume Lubrano, co-founder of WE Productions, each episode will be shot in English and French and will cover one or two stories adapted from the original graphic novels.

Sony Pictures have picked this up for a large swathe of European territories. Be interesting to see if they do the same for a USA release, particularly as the film of Heavy Metal is theirs....

I guess any saga from the Heavy Metal universe would not be the same without its trademark buxom and scantily clad babes and Metal Hurlant is no exception!
Step forward UK model - Kelly Brook and her two prize assets. All three are on view below and is it me or is the lizard man in the second pic on the right having difficulty keeping eyes front?
