Dane DeHaan on Metallica Through the Never: “It’s unlike anything that I’ve ever seen before”

The 27-year-old Amazing Spider-Man 2 star opens up about his role in Metallica's forthcoming big-screen concert movie

Dane DeHaan, who stars in the upcoming concert movie/drama hybrid Metallica Through the Never, says the film is “unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.”


Written by Predators screenwriter Nimrod Antal, Metallica Through the Never stars DeHaan as a roadie who has to “go through hell and back” for the band while they play a riotous live show.

“It’s in a way like a 3D concert movie but there’s also this narrative that ties together all the footage,” said DeHaan.

“It’s gonna be, first of all, really rock and roll and really ‘Metallica’ for lack of a better word; they don’t hold back at all. 

“But during the concert I basically go on this trip as a roadie for the band and I pretty much literally have to go through hell and back to take it back to them, and all of this is going on during the concert so it all ties together really kind of beautifully and uniquely.” 

The 27-year-old, who is soon to play Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, also told Collider: “It’s unlike anything that I’ve ever seen before; it’s almost like a concert movie meets The Wall meets Metallica…”

Metallica Through the Never is scheduled for release in the States on Friday 9 August, and it’ll be made available on Netflix shortly after its theatrical release.

Metallica were last seen on the big screen in 2004 in the documentary Metallica: Some Kind of Monster.
