Based on the 2001 autobiography “The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band,” the movie follows the group’s rise during the ’80s “hair band” rock scene on the Sunset Strip and pulls no punches as it dives into the band’s highs and lows along the way. Motley Crue played its final concert on New Year’s Eve in 2015 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The film is being directed by Jeff Tremaine (Jackass) and is based upon Motley Crue’s 2001 autobiography The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band. Featuring in the cast are Douglas Booth (Loving Vincent) as Nikki Sixx, Machine Gun Kelly (Nerve) as Tommy Lee, Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones) as Mick Mars and Daniel Webber (The Punisher) as Vince Neil.
The Dirt is set to deliver “a no-holds-barred account of the group’s rise to top of the ’80s rock scene, chronicling their ascent from the streets of Hollywood to the heights of international fame while conquering drug addiction and personal demons on their way toward redemption.”

Jeff Tremaine is directing the project based on the 2001 autobiography “The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band” by band members Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, Mick Mars, and Nikki Sixx, along with author Neil Strauss. Rich Wilkes, Tom Kapinos, and Amanda Adelson adapted the script.
Osbourne broke out in the 1970s as the lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Black Sabbath, which fired him in 1979. He then became an even bigger star in the 1980s when Motley Crue emerged.
The band was formed in L.A. and released its first album, “Too Fast for Love,” in 1981. Motley Crue combined hard rock, heavy metal, and glam rock, going on to sell more than 100 million albums worldwide.

The Dirt will primarily focus on Motley Crue's rise to fame in the 80s, which was when Ozzy Osbourne was at the height of his powers as a rock n roll icon. Ozzy had his fair share of struggles with alcohol and substance abuse, which also plagued the various members of Motley Crue. So this is sure to be a big part of Ozzy's inclusion in the movie.
