For more than a decade there has been talk of turning Motley Crue’s deliciously salacious autobiography, “The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band” into a movie.
Throughout the years, companies from MTV Films to Focus Features picked up the rights to the film, but it wasn’t until Netflix swooped in to purchase worldwide rights in 2017 that “The Dirt” was rescued from development purgatory.
The long-awaited rock-doc, which began filming a year ago in New Orleans, will arrive on Netflix March 22.
The movie stars Douglas Booth as bassist Nikki Sixx, Daniel Webber as singer Vince Neil, Iwan Rheon as guitarist Mick Mars and Machine Gun Kelly as Tommy Lee.
