The band will be producers for the film.

Love them or hate them, Motley Crue have an interesting story to tell. From opening the book with an act that I cannot describe here apart from stating that Tommy Lee would need an umbrella, to details of the time Vince Neil was involved in a car accident that killed the passenger in the car with him, to Tommy Lee's home movies, and the break up and reunion of the band, if the movie finds a way to capture the essence of the book, »
