Motley Crue Choose Biopic Director
Shock rocker Rob Zombie will tackle the story of Motley Crue on the big screen
The long gestating Motley Crue film looks finally set to move into production after Rob Zombie was announced as the film's director.
In an interview with Billboard Tommy Lee made the revelation, and said that the film could be the place where we see more new Crue material.
"That would be a cool place to release some new music," Lee notes. "It gives new reason for new music. People aren't really buying records these days, so it seems like a good place to maybe put something new from us."
Lee revealed that the band would start working on ideas in the summer when they are out on the road with Poison and the New York Dolls.
"When the four of us are together, which we will be in the summer, that's usually when it goes down," he says. "We record sound checks with new ideas. I always have a studio on my bus. So I would imagine we'll start compiling ideas this summer. It's almost like you've got to get away from home to start writing music."
No word on when the movie was due, or when Crue hoped to release new material but stay tuned to Planet Rock for more info as and when we have it.
