A biopic about the salacious life and times of Mötley Crüe is currently in the works.
According to Deadline, Netflix is “in talks” to take on the project, with Rich Wilkes and Californication creator Tom Kapinos writing the script and Jackass’ Jeff Tremaine directing.
Dirt follow the band’s highs and lows, from celebrity love affairs and opening for Ozzy Osbourne in 1983 to drug overdoses, deadly car crashes and dramatic in-fighting.
Based on an eye-popping book written by Mötley Crüe members Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, Mick Mars and Nikki Sixx and author Neil Strauss, band members also will work as co-producers on the film. No release date or casting information has been confirmed as yet.
In 2016, Mötley Crüe played their final ever tour, while that year also unveiling a new line of sex toys, including “eight powerful mini and midi-sized vibrators” emblazoned with artwork from the band’s ‘classic’ albums.
