Metallica Star Working on New Film

(Gibson) An upcoming 3D movie isn't the only Metallica-related film project. Bassist Robert Trujillo is funding a biopic about the influential bass legend Jaco Pastorius, according to USA Today.

"Jaco was my hero growing up. Hearing him was like hearing Eddie Van Halen doing 'Eruption' for the first time: You thought, 'What instrument is that?'" Trujillo said. "I loved jazz fusion and branched out from there. But Jaco had an edge that far exceeded his jazz persona. He was funk, he was rock, he was soul. And his whole attitude was punk."

The documentary, tentatively titled Jaco, is being directed by Stephen Kijack (2010's Stones in Exile). Trujillo hopes the movie will be ready in time to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival this fall. more on this story
