‘The Dirt’ Trailer: The Story of Mötley Crüe Comes to Netflix
Mötley Crüe gets their own movie this spring, courtesy of Netflix. It’s called The Dirt, based on the page-turning book of the same name. And it’s directed by Jeff Tremaine, the director of Jackass. Look, if anyone knows about immature dudes partying hard and doing insanely dumb/dangerous stuff, Jeff Tremaine does!
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
Based on Mötley Crüe’s 2001 best-selling autobiography, The Dirt is an unflinching and uncensored story about sex, drugs, rock ‘n roll, fame, and the high price of excess. Director Jeff Tremaine (JACKASS co-creator, BAD GRANDPA) shows us just how Nikki Sixx (Douglas Booth), Mick Mars (Iwan Rheon), Tommy Lee (Colson Baker), and Vince Neil (Daniel Webber) took Mötley Crüe from the Sunset Strip to the world stage, and what it meant to become the world’s most notorious rock band.
I’m not an expert on Mötley Crüe, so I can’t tell you how closely the cast matches the real band’s vibe. I did read The Dirt when it first came out, though, and it is one wild story. It has all the makings of a very watchable biopic — and the involvement of Tremaine is intriguing as well.
The Dirt premieres on Netflix on March 22.
