Good news! Netflix is in talks to produce 'Dirt', a film about the rise of 1980s heavy metal band 'Motley Crue'.

The project is based on The New York Times bestselling autobiography ' The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band', which was written by 'Motley Crue'members Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, Mick Mars and Nikki Sixx, as well as author Neil Strauss.

The book details the full spectrum of ' Motley Crue' excess with drugs, high-heeled boots, makeup and celebrity love affairs.

The script is being penned by Rich Wilkes and 'Californication' creator Tom Kapinos, the latter a die-hard fan of '70s and '80s rock music, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

'Jackass' Jeff Tremaine will direct while Julie Yorn, Erik Olsen and Allen Kovac are producing.

'Dirt' was previously being developed at Focus, and prior to that at Paramount.
