Based on the best-selling autobiography from Mötley Crüe, the film is an unflinching tale of success and excess as four misfits rise from the streets of Hollywood to the heights of international fame.
The Dirt stars Douglas Booth, Iwan Rheon, Colson Baker, and Daniel Webber. The film was directed by Jeff Tremaine from a script by Rich Wilkes and Amanda Adelson. The producers are Julie Yorn, Erik Olsen, and Allen Kovac. Rick Yorn, Chris Nilsson, Steve Kline, Ben Ormand, and Michelle Manning are the executive producers.
The Dirt will launch globally on Netflix March 22nd. The soundtrack will also be available on March 22 and features 14 Mötley Crüe classic hits and four brand-new songs.
The autobiography is officially described as follows: “Celebrate thirty years of the world’s most notorious rock band with the deluxe collectors’ edition of The Dirt—the outrageous, legendary, no-holds-barred autobiography of Mötley Crüe. Fans have gotten glimpses into the band’s crazy world of backstage scandals, celebrity love affairs, rollercoaster drug addictions, and immortal music in Mötley Crüe books like Tommyland and The Heroin Diaries, but now the full spectrum of sin and success by Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx, Vince Neil, and Mick Mars is an open book in The Dirt. Even fans already familiar with earlier editions of the bestselling exposé will treasure this gorgeous deluxe edition. Joe Levy at Rolling Stone calls The Dirt “without a doubt . . . the most detailed account of the awesome pleasures and perils of rock & roll stardom I have ever read. It is completely compelling and utterly revolting.”
