Netflix has released the first trailer for “The Dirt,” the biopic about the rise of 1980s heavy metal band Motley Crue based on the autobiography by Crue members Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, Mick Mars and Nikki Sixx along with author Neil Strauss.
The book follows the full run of their success and excess with drugs, high-heeled boots, makeup and celebrity love affairs – all while the band was selling more than 100 million records worldwide, falling out, and nearly dying from their lifestyle. Daniel Webber, Iwan Rheon, Douglas Booth and rapper Machine Gun Kelly star as the band.
Rich Wilkes and “Californication” creator Tom Kapinos penned the film which Jeff Tremaine helmed and has previously promised will be a “reckless and chaotic” look at their biography and one that won’t fall into the formulaic trap that often comes with biopics. The film hits the streamer on March 22nd.
