According to Deadline, a new biopic focusing on the late Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead) is currently in the works. The movie, which is simply titled “Lemmy,” will be directed by Greg Olliver, who previously directed the 2010 documentary of the same name.
“Everything you’ve heard about Lemmy is probably true… not because he was embracing rock n’ roll clichés, but because he was creating them. Marlboro Reds and Jack Daniel’s for breakfast, speed for dinner – all true. But behind that steely-eyed façade of rock n’ roll was also a compelling, complicated and lion-hearted man who stayed the course and never gave up playing the music that made him happy.
We’ve been carefully developing this biopic since 2013, making sure to stay true to Lemmy, Motörhead band members Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee, and all the other folks that played important roles in Lemmy’s life. This will be a film they’ll be proud of.”
Production on the film is expected to begin early next year with VMI Worldwide’s Andre Relis set to produce, alongside Damon Lane. The screenplay was written by Medeni Griffiths with some assistance from Olliver. Motörhead’s manager Todd Singerman and Steffan Chirazi will also serve as executive producers.
