Mötley Crüe's Tommy Lee says film adaptation of 'The Dirt' will be 'Triple R' rated
Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee has said that the forthcoming film adaptation of 'The Dirt' will be 'Triple R' rated.

A film version of the band's infamous biography The Dirt is set for release in 2015. Speaking to Billboard Lee said the film will be cast in July and explained that a recent read-through of the script was "probably the most fucking insanely surrealistic experience I've ever sat through - probably two hours and change of literally watching people act and play through this two-hour plus movie of 30 years of your life. I was just like, 'What the fuck?! That's insane! This movie is insane!' Even just the way the movie starts, you're like, 'How the hell are we gonna rate this thing? Triple R?'".

The actors who are cast will then join the band on tour. "I can just imagine some 25-year-old actor getting the part and being sent on the road to hang out and study us," he commented. "Wow, what a trip! They're gonna definitely come back a different animal."

The band are currently finishing up a new song called 'All Bad Things Must End', which they aim to play on their upcoming farewell tour. The band will play 75 arena dates in the US from July-November and have signed a 'Cessation of Touring Agreement' which states that there would be no further live dates from the end of 2015.

The group have said that this doesn't mean they are retiring. Speaking to Phoenix, Arizona's 93.3 KDKB radio station - via The Guardian - singer Vince Neil commented:

"Mötley Crüe will still be around, we're just not gonna tour anymore. That's really kind of it." He added: "Mötley Crüe's not breaking up. We're still gonna be making music. We're still selling merchandise." However, he said the band would "probably" only play a gig post 2015 if they were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

Alice Cooper is set to support Mötley Crüe on the US arena dates.
