Motley Crue's "The Dirt" To Hit The Silver Screen

The Crue's Autobiography Inked

From the Associated Press:

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Motley Crue Bassist Nikki Sixx says the band has just signed a deal to turn their autobiography, "The Dirt," into a film.

"You don't want it to be too watered-down but at the same time, I think it's kind of a survival story," Sixx told The Associated Press, "of four guys that came from these four completely different places, went through the fire together and coming up the other side and still surviving. We're all still alive, you know, somewhat," he said with a laugh.

Sixx says the appeal of their book is that their stories don't always mesh.

"We didn't want to do one of these books that was like, a tell-all book that was just combed through so perfectly so that everybody was comfortable with each others statements," he said. "Guys in the band say stuff about each other and that's what happens in real bands, so why not put it in print?"

Meanwhile, an arrest warrant was issued for Motley Crue lead singer Vince Neil for allegedly punching a record producer outside a West Hollywood nightclub last April.

Sixx said he was not surprised to hear the news.

" ...Is that the first one to ever happen for Motley Crue?" he asked. "To be honest with you, I don't really know. I blew a phone call to him because I've been out of town for three weeks and just really found out about it and was gonna find out what's up."

As for the film, Sixx said he would like Brad Pitt to play him, but his wife just laughed.
