Mötley Crüe biopic 'The Dirt' release date announced

film 04/12/2018

Mötley Crüe's frontman, Vince Neil has just announced that their band's long-awaited biopic, 'The Dirt' will be hitting Netflix screens on 22nd March 2019.

Based on the band's 2001 memoir which also shares the same title, Neil claims he had watched the completed film, sharing on Twitter that he can't wait for everyone to see it.

“Wow!!! Just left Netflix offices,” he tweeted. “Just saw ‘The Dirt’ movie!! Fuckin awesome!! Can’t wait for everyone to see it! Released March 22!! Yea!!!”

Three months ago, Neil confirmed that the band had regrouped to record four new songs for the soundtrack for the biopic film, which led to some confusion for longtime fans who were aware of the band's split at the end of their final world tour in 2015. Neil explained to fans,

“For those of you who don’t understand, yes 'the boys' means Motley and we signed a contract not to tour anymore," Neil responded. "We never broke up or said we would never make music again. Hope this clears it up."

Bassist Nikki Sixx also reassured fans that the new recordings are Mötley Crüe quality saying that the rough tracks "feels real and raw". He adds, "Plus we have a surprise that will confirm that we’re outta our minds.”

Although production for the film started almost 12 years ago in 2006, it had been going really slow until Netflix stepped in last year to speed things up.
