KISS Manager Doc McGhee Says The Band’s Upcoming Biopic Will Focus On Their First Four Years

During an interview with Talking Metal, KISS manager Doc McGhee offered more details on the band’s new biopic “Shout It Out Loud.” According to him, the film will focus on the band’s first four years.

McGhee said the following

“Actually, we have a script that’s completely done. Mark Canton, who is a very, very powerful producer and production company who has the TV series ‘Power’ and ‘Ghost’ and all that stuff, and he was a president of Sony and all that, he’s done 300 films — a really, really great guy — his team and Universal Music and ourselves have partnered up with Joachim Rønning, who is a very sought-after director that did things like ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’, and ‘Kon-Tiki’ was up for an Academy Award. And the script is about the first four years of KISS. Basically, it’s before they were famous — it was up to Cadillac High, that kind of thing. And I think it’s a very interesting look at the formation of KISS, the mindset of how that came about, the social pressure that everybody was in in the ’60s and ’70s that brought something like KISS to the forefront, that it could actually happen. So it’s a very interesting, and I think it’s a well-written movie. And our partners right now is Netflix. It’ll be a theatrical release, then Netflix.”

He also added:

“We’re finishing our deal with a couple of distributors in Europe and the U.S., and then we’ll get into casting. I believe before Thanksgiving we’ll be in the casting.”
