Having directed all four films in the Jackass series, Jeff Tremaine has plenty of experience dealing with rambunctious individuals.  Now it appears that the filmmaker is ready to tackle a fictional experience in the same vein, as he is attached to direct the coming-of-age story of 1980s rock band Mötley Crüe.  Fresh off the box office success of Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, Deadline reports that Tremaine will helm Dirt, which is based on Crüe’s autobiography The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band.  The pic will chronicle the rise of Mötley Crüe from playing local clubs to giant arenas and all the sex, drugs, and debauchery in between.

An adaptation of The Dirt has been in the works for years, with David Fincher at one point attached to direct for Paramount.  Tremaine has wanted to make the film for over a decade now, and it should make for an interesting narrative feature debut. Californication scribe Tom Kapinos is currently polishing the script with an eye towards starting production early next year.
