Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler Reveals Ron Howard Has Bought The Rights To His New Book
October 17, 2011
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler could see his life turned into a film biopic, he has revealed.
The singer, who published his memoirs Does The Noise In My Head Bother You? earlier this year, has revealed that the rights to the book have been purchased by The Da Vinci Code and A Beautiful Mind director Ron Howard’s production company.
Tyler told Women’s Wear Daily about the likelihood of a film biopic: “It’s either as soon as the plane goes down, or in my lifetime. I’m thinking since Ron Howard bought my book, his production company is thinking about doing something.”
He continued: “My book is called ‘Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?’ It’s collected thoughts. It’s all this shit I’ve been thinking about for 40 years. This whole thing with Aerosmith has been like a dream come true. It’s like it’s been plotted out and planned and written about before. Every time something happens, I think, ‘Is this a movie?'”
The book, which was published in May, famously contained the revelation that Tyler had tried gay sex, but just the once as he “didn’t dig it.”
Aerosmith are currently in the studio working on a new album.
When asked if American Idol meant less time to devote to the new Aerosmith album Tyler replied, “We’ve been doing an album while we’re doing this. There’s not enough time to get involved in the album the way I’d like to. It’s getting done, slowly but surely. The tour’s certainly happening. I’m so happy. The band is back together. Everybody’s lost their anger for me, for taking on ‘Idol’, they’ve all grown up a little, so it’s great.”
