The Mötley Crüe biopic, The Dirt, will be released on Netflix next spring. Frontman Vince Neil shared the news with an excited tweet: “Wow!!! Just left Netflix offices. Just saw The Dirt movie!! Fuckin’ awesome!! Can’t wait for everyone to see it! Released March 22!! Yea!!!” Rolling Stone confirmed the date with Netflix.
The film is based on the previously released book The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band. The book, co-written by Neil Strauss in 2001, contains some of the wild stories from the band's life, including the abuse of drugs and alcohol as well as their groupies.
The film version has been in the works since 2006, but shooting only began earlier this year. The cast features Machine Gun Kelly playing Tommy Lee, Douglas Booth (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) as Nikki Sixx, Iwan Reheon (Game of Thrones’ Ramsay Bolton) as Mick Mars, and Daniel Webber (11.22.63’s Lee Harvey Oswald) as Vince Neil. It also features depictions of Ozzy Osbourne, Heather Locklear, and Crüe manager Doc McGhee.
