Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx Addresses Biopic's 'Slow-Moving Process' was a Top 3 story on Friday: (Classic Rock) Nikki Sixx says they won't rush the forthcoming Motley Crue biopic, The Dirt. It was originally slated for release in summer 2016, with Jackass director Jeff Tremaine reported to be at the helm.

But the bassist says production is still being negotiated - and reminds fans that NWA box-office hit Straight Outta Compton was 11 years in the making.

He tells Sirius XM: "It's now being moved around. Some different companies are really interested. It's beyond being in development. We're changing partners. I know that Straight Outta Compton took over 11 years to put together. It's a slow-moving process."

Sixx continues: "I don't wanna really be involved in something that's just piece-mealed together just to say, 'We did it!' You know, one of those VH1 rock movies you see like on Meat Loaf. It's not what we wanted.

"We think that the story's actually more important than, actually, the band. It's a really interesting story. It's not really just about girls pulling their pants down in the bathroom and us snorting blow off their asses - there's a bigger story to it." Read more - here.
