Metallica are looking to recruit “superfans” for an upcoming documentary they are producing with Universal Music Group’s Mercury Studios.
An advertisement from the producers reads, “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.”
“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?” casting director Darren C Moore posted on the “Reality TV Casting Calls” Facebook page.
The open casting call invites “big personalities, unique characters and unexpected stories from Metallica fans who consider Metallica to be their favourite band, real ‘Fifth Member’ types.”
“All stories and walks of life are welcome and encouraged to reach out. We’re looking for the broadest range of different kinds of fans for this. We want to show the vast influence Metallica has had on the world!” it adds.
