Mötley Crue Biopic ‘The Dirt’ is Still Alive and Kicking With ‘Jackass’ Director

A biopic based on the Mötley Crue book ‘The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band’ has been in the works for several years, but it’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the rowdy project.
