The 54-year-old will be playing Officer Bob Hayward, who was actually the first cop to arrest Bundy when he pulled him over in 1975 and discovered what appeared to be a burglary kit in the back of his car. The filmmakers describe Hetfield's character as 'a no-nonsense Utah highway patrol veteran'.

Trip is a young and inexperienced roadie who is charged with the important mission of finding a damaged delivery vehicle and retrieving a valuable item that was on its way to sold-out Metallica concert. However, distracted as he is by the apparent complication of the task ahead, Trip's tour bus is crashed into side-on by a speeding car. Miraculously, he manages to escape with barely more than a scratch though only to find himself amidst a brutal looking battle between a sea of riot police and an army of masked, weapon wielding anarchists. Vehicles have been set alight and a murderous horseman is on the loose in this dystopic street scene as Metallica blare out their loudest, most aggressive hits on stage.

Berlinger and Sinofsky's film began as a simple record label-financed project to help promote the band's new record, yet soon morphed into a marathon three-year venture as the group - reeling from the departure of its long-time bassist Jason Newsted, and with the remaining members struggling to cope with newfound adult responsibilities and long-held bad habits - began to fray at the edges. Forced to attend group sessions with therapist-to-the-stars Phil Towle after Newsted's sudden exit, the band's remaining three members seem thoroughly fed up with each other - diminutive drummer and band spokesperson Lars Ulrich refuses to see eye to eye with singer (and struggling alcoholic) James Hetfield, who exasperatedly rolls his eyes at Towle's "Metallica Mission Statement" and ignores guitarist Kirk Hammett's pleas to make nice with Ulrich. A dysfunctional family with Ulrich as the band's de facto mommy, Hetfield as the controlling, liquored-up daddy, and Hammett as the timid child trying to stop the fighting, the group seems ready to explode. Then, with inter-band relationships at their most strained, Hetfield unexpectedly leaves for rehab, bringing an abrupt halt to sessions for the new album and awkwardly placing his band members' professional lives on indefinite hold.
