The movie is a coming-of-age comedy whose logline is “Two kids want to start a heavy metal band in a high school where exactly two kids care about heavy metal.”
The film was written by D.B. Weiss and produced by Weiss and Greg Shapiro. Weiss and David Benioff are executive producing. Weiss and Benioff are best known as the co-creators of the pop culture phenomenon Game of Thrones.
Peter Sollett (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) is set to direct. Starring in the flick is Jaeden Martell (Knives Out, It), Isis Hainsworth (Misbehaviour, Emma) and Adrian Greensmith in his feature film debut.
The film, which commenced shooting in November 2020, will be released globally later this year. Metal Lords is the first film to come out of Netflix’s partnership with Benioff & Weiss, who have made Netflix their creative home to write, produce and direct new series and films.
