I heard somewhere that Robert Rodriguez has gotten new rights to new Heavy Metal animated movie anthology, i hear this will ignore HM 2000 and continue where the first cult classic left off. I think this could be cool, loved the first movie since i was 12 when i saw it on Cinemax with other cool cult not for kids animated movies like Rock & Rule, American Pop, Vampire Hunter D, Robot Carnival and Hey Good Lookin' as they became faves of mine and HM is one of the best comic based movies. And been a fan of the comic magazine since i was 17 when i was finally old enough to buy them even the old ones at comic cons and comic stores. I hope they bring back that hottie known as Taarna, she's everyone's fave animated warrior chick lol. I think the new movie should have a variety of different animation in each segment, sort of an animated experiment like never before. I think each story should be in a different style from 2D animation, Flash, sketchy, Clayanimation, CGI, Stop Motion and anime. For directors they should have Quentin Tarantino, Zack Snyder, Will Vinton (California Raisins and Claymation specials fame), Henry Selleck (Nightmare Before Christmas with Paranroman and Coraline), Guillermo del Toro, Peter Chung of Aeon Flux fame, Yoshiaka Kawajari (Ninja Scroll with Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust and Wicked City fame), Bruce Timm, Michael Bay (Doing his animation debut) and Rob Zombie do the stories.
