Don’t worry, everyone – when Mötley Crüe said they were finished more than a year ago now, they meant it. They’ve still got a really cool surprise in store for fans, though as Netflix announced plans to turn the band’s New York Times Best-selling autobiography The Dirt: Confessions Of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band into a biopic, finally bringing to life the salacious tales Vince, Tommy, Mick and Nikki shared more than 15 years ago.
From the looks of things, The Dirt has one hell of a cast of characters bringing Mötley Crüe’s story to the small screen; Paramount and Focus Feature are working on a distribution deal with Netflix, and the project sees Jackass director Jeff Tremaine signing on to direct while Californication writer Tom Kapinos is hard at work writing the script.
Fun Fact: The band’s promoters thought they were bluffing when they were planning their last tour.
Whether you’re dying to hear about Mötley Crüe’s meteoric rise to fame, the groupies, clashes with police or infighting that would ultimately be a factor in the band’s decision to call it quits, The Dirt is bound to be a pretty entertaining movie and we can’t wait to check it out. No word on a release date just yet, but stay tuned to Society of Rock for more updates as they become available!
