This Doesn’t Look Good…
After almost a decade in the making, the highly anticipated Mötley Crüe biopic ‘The Dirt’ has finally been released exclusively on Netflix. Helmed by director Jeff Tremaine and brought to life by a stellar cast and crew, this movie, based off of the book of the same name, tells the story of how four misfits in Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, and Tommy Lee all came together to form the most notorious rock band in history.
With the film’s release, Mötley Crüe are once again all the rage. If you were to drive down Sunset Boulevard, you’ll find posters for the movie plastered everywhere and people dressing up like the members left and right. To put it simply, they’re all over the news, but not all for good reasons, unfortunately…
According to the New Orleans Advocate, a crewman named Louis DiVincenti, who worked on set for the film, is now suing the band and the producers for $1.8 million in reparation after suffering burns on roughly 40% of his body as a result of an accident. The accident occurred at the Munch Factory (a venue that was transformed to look like the Whiskey A Go Go) when Louis was holding a metal bar and that metal bar made contact with a power line.
He was then rushed to the hospital where as a result of the accident he had to have his right foot amputated and undergo several skin-graft operations.
As of right now, we do not know when the case will take place, but I think it goes without saying that we hope both parties will find a happy ending to this unfortunate set of circumstances.
We wish Louis DiVincenti all the best during his recovery.
