Mötley Crüe’s biopic ‘The Dirt’ in negotiations to land on Netflix

The Hollywood Reporter has reported earlier today that Mötley Crüe‘s biopic The Dirt is in negotiations to land on Netflix.

The following is an excerpt from The Hollywood Reporter:

“The project is based on The New York Times bestselling autobiography The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band, which was written by Mötley Crüe members Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, Mick Mars and Nikki Sixx, as well as author Neil Strauss.

The book was a no-holds-barred account of the iconic 1980s band’s rise to top of the hair metal and rock scene, all while experiencing a guitar case’s worth of drug overdoses, sex with slinky babes, run-ins with the police and in-fighting.

The project was last at Focus, which picked it up in January 2015. Before that it was at Paramount where directors such as David Fincher and Larry Charles were sweet on it.”
