Motley Crue’s ‘The Dirt’ Movie Finds a Studio Home (Sweet Home)

Motley Crue‘s long-discussed film project is on track, as Focus Features acquires the rights to distribute their biopic ‘The Dirt.’ Jeff Tremaine, of ‘Jackass‘ fame, is still set to direct.

‘The Dirt’ is based on Motley Crue’s similarly named tell-all book ‘The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band,’ which was co-written by Neil Strauss. An honest look at the hard-partying rockers, ‘The Dirt’ took an unflinching approach to Motley Crue’s soaring highs and their dizzying lows. All four members are listed as co-producers for the film, even as their Final Tour winds down.

It has been rumored that Motley Crue will wrap up these last dates with a show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, though Vince Neil hinted that they may make at least one more, smaller-scale appearance at the club where Motley Crue got their start.

“I hope we can have our final after-party at the Whisky a Go Go on the Sunset Strip where we began 34 years ago if it hasn’t been torn down by then,” Neil said. “It would be a fitting place to celebrate the beginning and the end.”
