This may be the most promising thing to be connected to Lulu. It’s been revealed that award winning director Darren Aronofsky will be filming a music video with Metallica and Lou Reed. Aronofsky will be shooting a video in the San Francisco Bay Area for the track “Iced Honey,” one of the only bearable songs on Lulu. Working once again with cameraman Matthew Libatique, Aronofsky will supposedly have a completed video later this month.
“As if making a record with Lou Reed is not enough, now I get to make a video with Darren Aronofsky, who has been among my very favorite filmmakers since his first movie, Pi,” Lars Ulrich said in a statement regarding the new collaboration (we guess Quentin Tarantino was busy). Best known for the films The Black Swan, The Wrestler, and the ultra trippy Requiem For A Dream, Aronofsky is an extremely talented director and screenwriter. Let’s just hope he doesn’t have Ulrich and Reed reenact the ‘ass to ass’ scene in Requiem For A Dream. Shoot, we knew we forgot to add something to our list of ways Metallica could piss off fans.
