Producers are looking for production assistants, grips, gaffers, make-up artists, stylists, wardrobe artists, and other crew members in New Orleans, Louisiana, to work on the upcoming film set to start filming on March 5th.
Drummer Tommy Lee and bassist Nikki Sixx have both shown via their Instagram accounts that they traveled to New Orleans for the beginning of “The Dirt” filming process. Several photos show the pair reunited in what could be for the first time since the band saw its final tour wrap up over two years ago.
Starring in the production are Daniel Webber (“The Punisher”) as frontman Vince Neil, Douglas Booth as Sixx, Machine Gun Kelly as Lee, and Iwan Rheon (“Game Of Thrones”) as guitarist Mick Mars with Jackass director Jeff Tremaine occupying the direction chair. Playing rock and roll Godfather Ozzy Osbourne in the film will reportedly be actor-comedian Tony Cavalero.
“The Dirt” is being produced by LBI Entertainment‘s Julie Yorn and Rick Yorn, along with Erik Olsen and Amanda Adelson, who wrote the script. Netflix will distribute the project, which was previously at Focus and before that at Paramount.[metalwani_content_ad]
Authenticity is also an important factor when it comes to “The Dirt”, with Vince previously speaking to Las Vegas Magazine on the script, he said it stays; “pretty close to ‘The Dirt’, so if you’ve read ‘The Dirt’, it’s really something to look forward to.”
Sixx and Lee attended a read-through of the script in 2014 with Tremaine and were impressed with what they saw, but in hindsight speculated as to how it might be rated.[metalwani_content_ad]
“Can I tell you it was the most fucking insanely surreal experience I’ve ever sat through, y’know,” Lee told GMI Rock News at the time. “I sat through probably two hours and change of literally watching people act and play through this two-hour-plus movie of your… of 30 years of your life that went by in two hours, and I was just like, ‘What the fuck?! That’s insane. This movie is insane.’ Even just the way the movie starts, you’re like, ‘How the hell are we gonna rate this thing, triple R?'”
