Steven Tyler Biopic Coming?
Hey Aerosmith fans! You might be grabbing a giant tub of popcorn, a 32 oz. Dr. Pepper and a front row seat at your local multiplex sometime soon! Why? Because frontman Steven Tyler revealed that a biopic is likely in his future.
The rocker told Women's Wear Daily – yes, we know, it's a fashion trade publication but Tyler is promoting his gig as the spokesmen for the Andrew Charles rock-inspired clothing line so that's why he's chatting with this particular media outlet- that his best selling memoir 'Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?' might be translated to the silver screen sooner than later.
Tyler said, in his typical quippy fashion, that "it's either as soon as the plane goes down, or in my lifetime. I'm thinking since Ron Howard bought my book, his production company is thinking about doing something."
Tyler also referred to the book as "collected thoughts" and that it's "all this s--- I've been thinking about for 40 years. This whole thing with Aerosmith has been like a dream come true. It's like it's been plotted out and planned and written about before. Every time something happens, I think, 'Is this a movie?'"
Well, it's true that the book's source material, which is Tyler's life, shares the blueprint with many similar musical sagas filled with sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll and more sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. But Tyler is larger than life and has terrific fashion sense, and those elements could be explored. Also, despite his rampant drug abuse, which he detailed in the book, saying, "I blew 20 million. I snorted my Porsche, I snorted my plane, I snorted my house in that din of drugs and booze and being lost,' he has crossed over into mainstream success as an 'American Idol' judge. It doesn't get bigger than that.
We're not directors nor are we cinematographers, but we are opinionated. If this potential biopic is placed in the proper hands, it could become a strange, trippy and non-linear project.
