Motley Crue - Motley Crue Have No Connection To The Dirt Movie
Rockers Motley Crue will have no control over an upcoming movie based on the band's bestselling book The Dirt, because they sold the rights years ago.
The group's 2002 tell-all, The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band, is heading to the big screen and Rob Zombie was recently tipped to direct, although the rocker subsequently denied the rumour.
Frontman Vince Neil has now spoken out about the film, insisting the bandmembers have absolutely no connection to the production.
He tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, "We have nothing to do with that. That was bought by Paramount Pictures when the book came out. And it's over 10 years ago. If they decide to make a movie, they make it. If they don't, they don't. It's been out of our hands for many years."
Neil is also adamant he doesn't care whether the film gets made or not, adding, "If it gets made, great, if it doesn't, I don't really care. It doesn't matter to me."
