Rolling Stone reports on Dec. 3 that the charismatic frontman unveiled the news via a Twitter post on Sunday amid recent reports that the Los Angeles rockers, who permanently retired from the road back in 2015, are back in the studio working on new songs. The film is based on the “Kick Start My Heart” hitmaker's highly controversial 2001 memoir "The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band."
"The Dirt" explores the exploits of the rock n' roll bad boys from their glory days in the 80s to their career low point in the 90s and resurgence in the 2000s. Produced by Motley Crue, the film went into production earlier this year and stars Machine Gun Kelly and Douglas Booth with director Jeff Tremaine at the helm.
"Just left Netflix offices,” writes Neil in his Twitter post. “Just saw “The Dirt” movie!! F**kin' awesome!! Can’t wait for everyone to see it!”
Members of Motley Crue have been focused on solo projects since the multi-platinum sellers brought their touring career to an end on Dec. 31, 2015, at a huge hometown bash Los Angeles at Staples Center, which was captured live in the concert film “The End: Live in Los Angeles." Neil along with bassist Nikki Sixx recently ignited reunion speculation in September when the pair revealed that the band had hit the studio to perform four new songs for the upcoming film in September.
