Production

Development

The project evolved from a late 2000s meeting whereby David Fincher and Tim Miller decided to make a remake of the 1981 film Heavy Metal. Announced in 2008, the project was to be produced by Paramount Pictures although Fincher and Miller had trouble getting the funding necessary for the project.[2]According to Miller, after the release of Deadpool, Fincher called Miller saying "OK, so we're going to use your newfound popularity to get our anthology movie made", only to eventually decide, "Fuck the movie stuff, let's just take it to Netflix, because they'll let us do whatever we want."[3] The two noted that the popularity of YouTube during the gestation period caused a change in their thinking with Miller stating "I honestly think that it's funny, because David and I back then would be having the argument of, 'Can people consume media this way?' And now it becomes the argument of, 'Can people consume media any other way?'"[2]

Writing

Sixteen of the eighteen short films in the first season are short story adaptations.[2] Initially this was not planned, with the duo envisioning a variety of methods by which they would have developed the series. Miller originally suggested a longer list of stories that he wanted to adapt.[3] Miller primarily wrote outlines and drafts for each short and allowed for scripts to be changed as studios saw fit in order to aid the production.[4]

Release

Netflix released the first trailer for the series on February 14, 2019. The trailer featured Matt Green's industrial hardcore remix of AMBASSADOR21's "We Are Legion".[5] The episodes of the show are displayed in different orders to different users, which differ from how most shows are displayed on the service.[6] In response to an accusation that the episode order was based on the streaming company's perception of a user's sexual orientation, Netflix responded that there were four unique episode orders, released to users at random.[7]
