Late Metallica Bassist Cliff Burton Inspired Title Character In 'Hesher' Movie

Metallica doesn't often grant permission for the use of their songs in movies, making just a handful of exceptions over their nearly 30-year career. But the group likes an upcoming independent feature called 'Hesher' enough to let the filmmakers use some of the band's music.

According to ContactMusic.com, star Joseph Gordon-Levitt who plays the title character, admits he based much of his character's behavior on late Metallica bassist Cliff Burton, who died when Metallica's tour bus crashed in the UK in 1986, and he was stunned when his rock idols recognized the similarities without prompting.

The first official trailer for 'Hesher' can be viewed below.

Metallica songs have been used in documentaries like 'Paradise Lost: The Child Murders At Robin Hood Hills' and 'Absent', and the occasional feature film like 'Zombieland'.
