LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe has teamed up with photographer/filmmaker Rob Fenn and Oscar-winning actor Billy Bob Thornton to write the upcoming movie “You, Me And A ’63”.
“You, Me And A ’63” is described as a documentary series that follows Fenn around the United States in his 1963 Ford Thunderbird. Fenn also produced and directed the film, which is narrated by Thornton.
Blythe, who has previously described himself as “a decent writer”, told Metal Hammer magazine earlier in the year that he is writing a futuristic novel. “It’s set 50 to 100 years in the future,” Blythe said. “I’m wracking my brain right now, because you have to figure out all sorts of little things we don’t think about, because of the incredibly rapid advancement of technology.”
Comparing making music to the art of writing, Blythe said: “Writing a book makes writing a record look like going to kindergarten. It’s a much more tense, concerted, extended, creative effort — it requires a lot of focus that [the touring] environment does not provide.”
Blythe‘s memoir, titled “Dark Days”, focused on his time in a Prague prison while on trial for manslaughter.
