Mötley Crüe drummer and also the co-founding member of the band, Tommy Lee, has been interviewed in the latest episode of ‘Walking The Floor With Chris Shiflett’ podcast and talked about how did they handle the post-production process of The Dirt.
The Dirt has been released back in 2019 and it’s the biographical comedy-drama movie of the legendary rock band Mötley Crüe. While the talks of the biopic began after MTV has bought the rights of ‘The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band,’ the project has officially begun after Netflix has bought the rights of the book 2017.
In his latest interview, Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee has shared the story of how did they meet with various directors and how happy were they after they’ve managed to release the movie.
Here is what he said:
“Dude, you know what? All of us couldn’t be happier. It’s funny, because when we were — not auditioning but meeting with different directors… ‘Cause that was really important: Who is going to tell the story?
Because we all know, and you’ve seen ’em, there’s some pretty shitty rock movies out there. I won’t mention any names… So that was the most crucial [part] — finding the right director. Who’s gonna fucking tell the story, because this is an insane story to tell. So, we’re meeting with directors, and Jeff Tremaine comes up.”
“And we literally went into that meeting going, like, ‘The guy from ‘Jackass’? That directed the ‘Jackass’ [movies]?’ We’re, like, ‘Look, this isn’t a fucking comedy. This is not the guy.’ That’s how we went into the meeting.”
