The Dirt Jeff Tremaine
Of course, the idea of a biopic of one of rock 'n roll's filthiest, most colorful bands of all time, Mötley Crüe, is a great one. But getting it made is a whole other story. "Dirt" has been brewing for years, and at one point was going to be helmed by Larry Charles ("Religulous," "Borat"). But a variety of factors—the acquisition of MTV Films by Paramount, Charles's desire to make an appropriately NC-17 movie about the band, his admitted dislike for the group—kiboshed the project and nothing was really heard about it since. But it looks like it's getting cranked back up to 11 once again.
