A new biopic about the late Lemmy Kilmister is in the works, The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline report. The film, currently called Lemmy, will be directed by Greg Olliver, who also helmed the 2010 documentary Lemmy. According to the reports, the movie will focus on Lemmy’s early life, before he became the frontman of Motörhead.
“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,” Olliver said in a statement to THR and Deadline. “This will be a film they’ll be proud of.”
According to the reports, Lemmy will be produced by Andre Relis (CEO of VMI Worldwide) and Damon Lane, executive produced by Motörhead’s manager Todd Singerman and Steffan Chirazi, and written by Medeni Griffiths, with additional writing by Greg Olliver.
