Lamb of God's Randy Blythe Is Writing a Movie with Billy Bob Thornton
After announcing his authorship of a sci-fi novel and his position on the editorial board of a lifestyle magazine, Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe has added another project to his plate this year: writing a movie alongside actor Billy Bob Thornton and photographer/filmmaker Rob Fenn.

Titled You, Me and a '63, the film is set to follow Fenn around the United States in his 1963 Ford Thunderbird. Thornton will also serve as a narrator, with Fenn handling duties as a producer and director.

"Writing a book makes writing a record look like going to kindergarten," Blythe told Metal Hammer in January of this year. "It's a much more tense, concerted, extended, creative effort — it requires a lot of focus that this environment does not provide." We can only guess how different writing a film will be for him.

You, Me and a '63 has no release date as of yet, but you can read through Fenn's enthusiastic Instagram post below.

And so it begins... @YouMeAndA63 Today is such a special day for me! I get to officially let you know what the hell 'You, Me And A 63' actually is. I am making a film with the iconic Billy Bob Thornton. Sit back and let that crazy shit set in….. This film will not only star Marilyn (My 1963 Ford Thunderbird) and myself, but it will also be narrated by Billy Bob Thornton. This film will show my journey down Historic Route 66 that has me cross paths with many of my musical influences along the way. So many wonderful and talented people are involved in this film and have all been hand picked by myself. (Including the beautiful hitch hiker walking down the road outside of a little ghost town in Texas.) Another special part of this project is that it is written by Billy Bob Thornton, Randy Blythe, and myself. Imagine what will happen with those three creative minds are spewing all over a page! There is so much to talk about on this, and that's just what I'll be doing right here! We are doing something very special and new in film and I am extremely THANKFUL to have you be a part of it. All the best, Rob
