first_imgThe latest tribute to the late Lemmy Kilmister will reportedly be a biopic focusing on the early life of the Motörhead frontman and bassist who died in December 2015 at the age of 70.According to a report shared by The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday, the film project currently titled, Lemmy, will be directed by Greg Olliver, who was also behind the 2010 documentary of the same name. The new, scripted film will highlight Kilmister’s pre-Motörhead life growing up in post-war England, his first experiences in the industry while working as a roadie for Jimi Hendrix, and his time as a member of psychedelic rock outfit Hawkwind. Casting details for the film have yet to be revealed.Related: Dave Grohl, Slash, And More Pay Tribute To Fallen Rock Icon Lemmy [Watch]“Everything you’ve heard about Lemmy is probably true,” Olliver told The Hollywood Reporter of the forthcoming project. “Marlboro Reds and Jack Daniel’s for breakfast, speed for dinner — all true. But behind that steely-eyed façade of rock ‘n’ roll was also a compelling, complicated and lion-hearted man who stayed the course and never gave up playing the music that made him happy. We’ve been carefully developing this biopic since 2013, making sure to stay true to Lemmy, Motörhead band members Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee, and all the other folks that played important roles in Lemmy’s life. This will be a film they’ll be proud of.”With all of the entertainment industry from live events to film and television, production for the film won’t begin until early next year.Back in 2016, Motörhead fans petitioned for Coca-Cola to rename the classic ‘Jack And Coke’ cocktail as a “Lemmy.”[H/T The Hollywood Reporter]last_img read more
