The much talked about perennially-shelved adaptation of Mötley Crüe’s auto-debaucherography The Dirt, seemingly has some movement for its eventual production, with Jackass directer Jeff Tremaine attached to the project. In the past, the movie has gone through many scenarios for its adaptation, with directors including Larry Charles (Borat, Brüno) and David Fincher (Fight Club, Social Network) tagged as possibilities for the film.
Crüe group members Tommy Lee and Nikki Sixx (respectively) attended a script reading with Tremaine last year, with Lee noting it as a “surreal experience“, further stating “I sat through probably two hours and change of literally watching people act and play through this two-hour-plus movie of your… of 30 years of your life that went by in two hours“.
No possible casting rumours as of yet, although Lee said the film would not feature big stars, “we’re going with all unknowns. I think that’s crucial here, too. Getting known actors would not do anybody or the film or the band or any of that stuff justice“. Regardless, the screenwriters have a huge amount of material to adapt, and surely this of all movies would warrant a high certification!
