Motley Crue Pick Jackass Director For The Dirt Movie

(hennemusic) Motley Crue have hired "Jackass" movie series and "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa' director Jeff Tremaine to direct the film adaptation of their 2001 biography, "The Dirt: Confessions Of The World's Most Notorious Rock Band."

"I've been careful to make this a natural progression," Tremain tells Deadline. "I've been offered a lot of scripts but Dirt is something I pursued with everything I had. I've wanted to make this going back to 2001, when we were just planning the first Jackass movie and I found out that David Gale at MTV Films had just optioned the book.

"First of all, I had no idea how to make Jackass into a movie, but I said to him, let me direct that movie, too. He said, yeah, of course! He was being sarcastic, because he had the same level of confidence in me as a director as I did at that time.

"Luckily for me, the movie never got made, and when this project became available, I put everything I had into chasing it and convincing everyone that I am the right guy for it. I really feel I am." more on this story
