Lou Reed and Metallica Recruit Black Swan Director

(Gibson) Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky is set to direct a music video for a track from Lulu, the new collaborative album by Lou Reed and Metallica. Aronofsky, who also directed the Oscar-nominated film The Wrestler, will make the video for the song "Iced Honey," with scenes to be shot in the San Francisco Bay area.

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich said that, for him, working with Reed and Aronofsky is "living the dream." "As if making a record with Lou Reed is not enough, now I get to make a video with Darren Aronofsky," Ulrich said, "who has been among my very favorite filmmakers since his first movie, Pi." Perhaps with tongue in cheek, Reed said he hopes the video "can be [Aronofsky's] next Black Swan."

The veteran rocker has called Lulu, which was released on Tuesday, "the best music [he] has ever done." more on this story
