The release date for Motley Crüe‘s biopic The Dirt has been confirmed for March 2018. Crue’s frontman Vince Neil shared news of when fans could expect to see The Dirt on Twitter. “Wow!!! Just left Netflix offices,” he wrote. “Just saw The Dirt movie!! F_in’ awesome!! Can’t wait for everyone to see it! Released March 22!! Yea!!!” Netflix representatives have confirmed the release date.
The forthcoming film, which is based on the 2001 autobiography of the same name, has been in the works since 2006. Filming eventually began earlier this year, with the band serving as producers on the project. Neil will be played by actor Daniel Webber, while rapper Machine Gun Kelly plays Tommy Lee, Douglas Booth plays Nikki Sixx, and Game Of Thrones‘ Iwan Rheon will portray Mick Mars.
Earlier this year, it was announced Motley Crüe had recorded four new songs for the film’s soundtrack. The band quit touring in 2015 and signed an agreement saying they would never tour again. They last released new music in 2008 with the album Saints Of Los Angeles.
