Rob Zombie To Direct Motley Crue Film ‘The Dirt’
March 2, 2011
Andrew Tijs of Undercover.fm reports that Rob Zombie is on board to direct the film version of Motley Crue’s notorious memoir ‘The Dirt’.
‘The Dirt – Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band’ was put together by the band and Neil Strauss and released in 2002, recounting the chaotic life of the band in the ’80s and ’90s.
Now their peer, Rob Zombie, has been enlisted to direct the screen adaptation.
Tommy Lee let the news slip to Billboard, also saying, “That would be a cool place to release some new music. It gives new reason for new music. People aren’t really buying records these days, so it seems like a good place to maybe put something new from us.”
Rob Zombie has the directing chops as the man behind the Halloween remake and other gorefests House Of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects and the forthcoming The Lords Of Salem.
He’s currently touring Australia on the Soundwave festival.
