Dude, Where's My Motley?

03/24/2011
.
We once joked that Ashton Kutcher of Dude, Where's My Car? fame would be perfect to play Tommy Lee in the film version of Motley Crue's The Dirt. It appears that the screenwriter of the film agrees. Dude! Gibson has the report: Neil Strauss, the author who co-wrote the Mφtley Crue biography The Dirt, was recently interviewed about the book's possible transition to feature film. According to BraveWords.com, Strauss told MTV that he hopes the movie gets made.

"I know they're looking at a few different directors for it," he said. "I gotta say, the screenplay is amazing. I really hope they make it. I think it will be great. I think they're just scared because it's obviously going to be a hard R-[rated] movie. I think they're worried they won't make enough money off it."

Although Strauss didn't have any ideas for casting the film, he did offer screenwriter Rich Wilkes' ideal candidates. "Here's who he sees: Brad Pitt as David Lee Roth, Jared Leto as Vince Neil, Jack Black or Philip Seymour Hoffman as Ozzy Osbourne, Robert Patrick or Justin Timberlake as their first manager, Sam Rockwell as Mick Mars, Ashton Kutcher or Russell Brand as Tommy Lee," Strauss said. "He's got it all thought out. That would be amazing." more on this story
