During an interview, Robert Rodriguez spoke of possibly bringing the 'Heavy Metal' series to television. He first announced his plan to make a new 'Heavy Metal' movie at San Diego Comic Con back in 2011. 

"Well, now that I've got a television network, potentially we could go into television as well. It would be a variation of different types of animation … Classic, some hand drawn, some digital, some mixed media. That was always great about 'Heavy Metal' is everybody did a different thing, story dependent."

I would hope the American verison has a far bigger budget than the Euro (France/Beligum) METAL HURLANT Chornicles. And of which, came-off similar to the TV remakes of THE TWILIGHT ZONE and THE OUTER LIMITS, or even the THE HITCHHIKER. Also, this European (filmed in English) version will be shown on the US Syfy Channel, starting this April. And the unaired second season may make it's debut in the run, too.. Michael Biehn will be a special guest for at least one episode (Rutger Hauer was one in the first season). I like Robert's idea of a possible new series being a mix of visual-styles; as that is totally in-line with the concept of the original magazine.
Thanks Svanya!

No need to worry Sawa, I think Robert Rodriguez intends on it being like the Canadian "Heavy Metal" movie from the 80's.

It would be more than just nice, if he could dedicate an entire season of the possible new series to covering THE INCAL And of course, an adult-rated version; either live-action or animated. There is a live-action film version in development; however, unless they start shooting it, I will not become very excited.
And certainly the 1981 film has been the best to date, in bringing HEAVY METAL to life. Although, I was actually disappointed when I first watched it. I was under the impression it was going to be way more 'heavy' than even the magazine itself (since it was to be a full-blown theatrical film experience).
Thanks Svanya.
