The Hollywood Reporter recently unveiled the actors who are in talks or already confirmed to play the four members of Mötley Crüe in the biopic “The Dirt.” The film is an adaptation of the book of the same name.
Mötley Crüe was an American heavy metal band formed in Los Angeles, California, on January 17, 1981. The group was founded by bass guitarist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee, lead singer Vince Neil and guitarist Mick Mars. Mötley Crüe has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, including 25 million albums in the United States, making it one of the best-selling bands of all time.
The members of the band have often been noted for their hedonistic lifestyles and the persona they maintained. Following its hard rock and heavy metal origins, with the third album Theatre of Pain (1985) the band joined the first wave of glam metal. Its final studio album, Saints of Los Angeles, was released on June 24, 2008. Its final show took place on New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2015, and was filmed for a theatrical and Blu-ray release in 2016.
