Deadline is reporting that Netflix is in development on a biopic of the American heavy metal band Motley Crue, which is based upon the bestselling autobiography The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band, penned by band members Vince Neil, Tommy Lee, Mick Mars and Nikki Sixx and author Neil Strauss.
The biopic, which was previously developed by Paramount Pictures and Focus Features, will detail the full spectrum of Motley Crue’s excess with drugs, high-heeled boots, makeup and celebrity love affairs. It is being written by Rich Wilkes (Airheads, xXx) and Tom Kapinos (Californication), while Jeff Tremaine (Jackass) is set to direct. Motley Crue members Neil, Lee, Mars and Sixx are also on board as co-producers. »
