"Hellbound?" to begin production at "Copenhell"
"Hellbound?", a feature length documentary that takes the hell debate to the big screen, will begin principal photography on June 17-18 at Copenhell 2011, a heavy metal festival in Copenhagen, Denmark.

"While many people would rather not think about hell, for decades fans of death metal and black metal music have insisted we keep it front and center," says producer Kevin Miller. "I'm eager to talk to the bands and the fans to find out why they're drawn to such images and why they have had such an enduring appeal."
The Copenhell lineup includes bands like Judas Priest, Korn, Mayhem, Morbid Angel, Deicide and the interstellar freak show known as GWAR. In addition to the music, the two-day festival features all sorts of bizarre and alternative sideshows.
"Even though I've been a metal fan for most of my life, some of these bands take you to some dark places, so it's certainly going to pull me out of my comfort zone," says Miller. "But I've dreamed of making this film for nearly three years now, and I can't think of a better way to dive right into the material."
Until now, Miller has worked primarily as a screenwriter on such films as "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed" and "Sex+Money."
A key member of Miller's creative team is co-producer David Rempel, a veteran of several made-for-television movie projects. "For me, this is a real departure from melodrama to 'uber-drama,'"
Production on "Hellbound?" will continue throughout the summer and fall, with shoots taking place at various locations throughout North America and overseas. "Hellbound?" is scheduled for release in 2012.
