The Biopic Trend Is Not Stopping Anytime Soon
After Bohemian Rhapsody, The Dirt, and with everyone looking forward to Rocketman, it seems like biopics are taking over the big screen. And it’s not exactly surprising given how people perceive the rock ‘n roll lifestyle and with so many wild & crazy rumors surrounding their favorite bands, fans would love to see these stories portrayed by actors. And it may look like everyone is jumping on the bandwagon but maybe not Guns ‘N Roses.
In an recent interview with Chile’s Futuro 88.9 FM, Slash revealed his thoughts on The Dirt:
“I thought the Motley movie was great. It really took me back to the early days in the ’80s and all the way through their career, because I just remember everything that happened along the way. And then it gave me some insights as to internal details that I wasn’t really aware of. But I thought that came out great.”
Interestingly though, he wouldn’t want anything like that for GnR.
“I wouldn’t wanna do a Guns movie like that. I couldn’t imagine trying to find somebody to play the different members of the band. It just doesn’t even seem possible.”
But he did say that a documentary is more plausible especially since they have several footage during their tours from 1991 to 1994.
“I think we have a lot of concert footage from the ’90s in the can — like, 24-7 footage from 1991 to 1994, of just every day on the road with Guns N’ Roses. It’s been sitting in a vault for years. I would love for that to be edited at some point and put out. So we’ll see if that ever happens.”
A few years back, Slash already mentioned his lack of interest for a GnR biopic. Although we would love to see their story brought to the big screen, we also wouldn’t say no to a documentary. We’ll take what we can get.
