A movie that tells the story of Motley Crue just received a jolt. Jeff Tremaine, the man who recently directed Bad Grandpa, has joined the project.
Tremaine will serve as director for the film adaptation of Motley Crue's book, The Dirt: Confessions of The World's Most Notorious Rock Band. In addition to Bad Grandpa, Tremaine has directed the Jackass movies and television show along with many of it's various spinoffs.
The film shoot early next year.
Tremaine tells Deadline, "“I’ve been offered a lot of scripts but Dirt is something I pursued with everything I had. I’ve wanted to make this going back to 2001, when we were just planning the first Jackass movie and I found out that David Gale at MTV Films had just optioned the book. First of all, I had no idea how to make Jackass into a movie, but I said to him, let me direct that movie, too. He said, yeah, of course! He was being sarcastic, because he had the same level of confidence in me as a director as I did at that time. Luckily for me, the movie never got made, and when this project became available, I put everything I had into chasing it and convincing everyone that I am the right guy for it. I really feel I am.”
