MOTLEY CRUE: SOON A MOVIE

Motley Crue
While Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil is chatting with the media about possibly leaving the celebrated ’80s rockers, bass player Nikki Sixx is going the opposite direction and saying the band are just getting started!

“This is the beginning of what will be the biggest probably four to five years of the band’s career,” he told Rolling Stone. “We’re negotiating with a couple of other extremely huge bands on doing a co-headline tour, something that’s never happened before. There’s new music in the future.”

Sixx says that’s not all. A full-fledged Mötley Crüe movie is in the works. “The other thing to look at is the wheels are in motion for getting the Mötley Crüe movie made now,” he said. “We finally got everything in order the way it needs to be done, and that’s gonna happen.”

The movie, Sixx explained, would be shaped around the band’s memoir, The Dirt. “We have sort of an agreement with a production company, directors, etc., to right now just keep it amongst ourselves,” Sixx said. “So once we have everything really together, we’re gonna let everybody know. But trust me, when I say the wheels are in motion they’re definitely in motion.”

Even with all the starry-eyed plans for a movie and upcoming Las Vegas residency, Sixx said that at some point, the guys will hang up their heavy metal hats: “The band sat down and had a powwow as brothers and friends and guys who’ve been doing this for over 30 years, and we said, ‘When is it time?’ We’ve always said since we were kids, we didn’t want to hobble into the sunset. So after the movie, at some point – whether it’s within a year or a few years – we’re probably gonna have that conversation about maybe it’s time, maybe it’s time to go out on top.”
