MotleyCrue Motley Crue have hired Jackass director Jeff Tremaine to work on the movie version of their infamous autobiography The Dirt.

A big-screen version of the 2001 book is one of the three projects the band have vowed to complete before retiring. Bassist Nikki Sixx said earlier this year they’d “blow their brains out” following the movie, a final album and a farewell world tour.

Tremaine directed the cult Jackass series on MTV since its 2000 debut.

He tells Deadline, “I’ve been offered a lot of scripts but The Dirt is something I pursued with everything I had. I’ve wanted to make this going back to 2001. I put everything I had into chasing it and convincing everyone that I am the right guy for it. I really feel I am.”

No further details are currently available.

Meanwhile, Crue vocalist Vince Neil says he’d like to appear in a future series of reality show Celebrity Apprentice, but insists rumors that he’s already signed up are untrue. “I met with the producers and the network and stuff,” he explains. “That’s all I ever said, that I’m up for it.

  1. MOTLEY CRUE is a great and important metal band. As far as a movie goes, it will be stupid and redundant. The director of JACKASS is appropriate for this. This will be self serving nonsense. Lots of sex, fights and drugs. BIG FUCKING DEAL. WHO GIVES A SHIT? Just make another album as good as SAINTS and that’s fine. How many naked blonds can you see in 90 minutes? Give it up boys, you re too old and so are your fans.

    1. It would be a great movie if they did some Jackass type stuff with the Crue. Get Nikki Sixx in an outhouse, light it on fire and then catapault it into a lake. Dress Vince Neil up as a 90 year old with his long hair and send him into an adult home and have him hit on the geezer women. Put Mick Mars in a wheelchair and send him downhill on the highway against traffic. Plenty of stuff you could put Tommy Lee through as well. He could go to a Urologist and as a goof see if they offer P-Reduction surgery.

  2. I see Vince is lending his name to a Circus Circus venture. If I see him in another out of the way indian casino or large dive bar immediately after a Crue tour I’ll scream. Self serving nonsense is correct….EVH showed Diamond Dave the door for this kind of mutt puppy chow that will bomb. 21 trailer park b-list strippers for Vince, oh wow, gee really, file under jackass. These bozos can still play at an alarmingly amazing top of the game rate but this movie is a joke. Retire? My ass, their Hard Rock residency continues after. Better do it now before Vince becomes a Macy’s Parade blimp or MM becomes the guy on the bench Ruth Buzzi purse bopped on Laugh-In
