"2005=movie and tour. Maybe warm-up dates in 04. But in the land of MÖTLEY, I doubt it. Nothing ever runs on time," wrote Sixx.
Movie? What Movie? A news posting to the official Motley message board had this to say: Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx has told the German edition of Metal Hammer that talks are underway between the group's management and MTV about a possible "MTV ICON" event to help raise the profile of the band in the months leading up to the release of the movie version of CRÜE's best-selling band autobiography, "The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band", and subsequent farewell tour.
Mötley Crüe signed a deal with Paramount Pictures and MTV Films in late 2002 to make a movie version of "The Dirt". Filming of the CRÜE story which includes drugs, death, near death, and girls, girls, girls will begin later this year for a 2004 theatrical release.
