According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mötley Crüe’s “The Dirt” biopic is in negotiations to find a new home at Netflix. The film was previously attached to Focus Features and Paramount before that. The staff working on the movie, which is being directed by Jeff Tremaine (“Jackass”), reportedly includes script writers Rich Wilkes and Tom Kapinos, producers Julie York, Erik Olsen and Allen Kovac, executive producers Chris Nilsson, Steven Kline, Rick Yorn and all four band members.
The Raskins paid $1 million to get the opportunity to serve as the opening act on Mötley Crüe’s final tour, but it seemed to be a disastrous experience for the group. According to the New York Post, Logan and Roger Raskin have filled a $30 million lawsuit against Mötley Crüe for hazing and mistreatment on the trek. The band claims that they were not allowed to play long, and that hardly anyone saw them, since they went on before the doors open. They were also not allowed to sell merch, and were hit with heavy equipment as well. They even claim that they were actually shot “with water guns filled with urine,” by crew members in monkey masks, when they were in Darien, Conn. Tenth Street Entertainment, AGI and other production companies were all named in the suit.
Mötley Crüe will be releasing a limited edition career spanning box set, which they are calling “The End.” The set will be available on November 25, and will include copies of “Too Fast For Love,” “Shout At The Devil,” “Theatre Of Pain,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Dr. Feelgood,” and “Saints Of Los Angeles” on CD/vinyl, a live CD/DVD of the band’s final show, signed lithograph photo prints of the band, four exclusive Mick Mars guitar picks, and a VIP laminate from their final tour. Preorders for that and a “Shout At The Devil” anniversary bundle can be found on PledgeMusic.
Mötley Crüe have posted a live video of them performing “Girls, Girls, Girls” during their final show, which took place on December 31, 2015. The footage is from the band’s “The End” film, which has been showing in select theaters. It will also be available on DVD later this year.
Mötley Crüe filmed their final performance, which took place on December 31, 2015, for an upcoming DVD release, and now the film, titled Mötley Crüe: The End, has a premiere date. The Christian Lamb and Jeff Tremaine (Jackass) directed movie will hit theaters on June 14.
Here is the synopsis for the film:
“This New Year’s Eve Celebration was filled with hits like ‘Kickstart My Heart,’ ‘Girls Girls Girls,’ ‘Home Sweet Home’ and many more. Now, for only one night, this last ever performance event gives fans front row access. Catch the moments that were buzzed about, such as Tommy’s infamous ‘Crüecifly’ drum roller coaster, and behind the scene moments that will now just be coming to light.”
As previously reported, Mötley Crüe will be releasing a new DVD featuring their final performance, which took place on December 31, 2015. You can check out a new teaser for that below:
Mötley Crüe is officially over. The band played their final show last night (December 31) in Los Angeles, CA. They performed an 18 song set that didn’t necessarily go flawlessly, considering Tommy Lee’s drum roller coaster malfunctioned, and Vince Neil got a little emotional, but it still seemed like a proper send off.
