Netflix is in talks to develop a project called “Dirt”, based on the bestselling Motley Crue memoir and biopic, “Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band”.
The book was written by the band members themselves: Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, Mick Mars, and Nikki Sixx, with the help of writer Neil Strauss, who penned their experiences living on the edge in the 80s as one of the most successful bands of their era.
The project will most likely be directed by Jeff Tremaine, and the script will be written by Greek-American Tom Kapinos and Rich Wilkes.
Kapinos is well-known as the creator of “Californication”, in which the lead character, played by David Duchovny, experiences a crazy lifestyle with plenty of debauchery to go around, so the writer is not new to this type of story.
No specific production date has yet been set as the story is still being worked on and Netflix has not yet confirmed the deal. However, if it does go through, it will be exciting to finally see the story of the infamously hard-partying band that sold over 100 million records and defined a whole genre of music for their generation.
