The Motley Crue story will be told in ‘The Dirt’, the first big budget biopic after Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ but you won’t have to go to the cinema to see this one, its coming to you on Netflix.

The book ‘The Dirt’ was published in 2001. It was a collaborative effort between Motley Crue members Tommy Lee, Mick Mars, Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx and glued together by New York Times writer Neil Strauss. The first edition was a New York Times bestseller for four weeks.

In 2015 Nikki Sixx told Classic Rock, ”Anybody can make a shitty rock movie. We don’t want to do that. We don’t just want to slap together the thrill moments. Any of the great movies, whether it’s Walk the Line or Ray, they got the music right and the personalities right.”

Director Jeff Tremaine (JACKASS co-creator, BAD GRANDPA) created the movie with cast Nikki Sixx (Douglas Booth), Mick Mars (Iwan Rheon), Tommy Lee (Colson Baker), and Vince Neil (Daniel Webber).

Daniel Webber is the Australian actor who played Lee Harvey Oswald in the mini-series 11.22.63. The actor from Gosford, New South Wales has also starred in Home and Away and All Saints.

According to Netflix, “The Dirt is an unflinching and uncensored story about sex, drugs, rock ‘n roll, fame, and the high price of excess”.
