Marc Canter says film based on his authorised biography has been in the works for four months
The story of Guns N’ Roses‘ formation and rise to fame is to be turned into a feature film.
The film will be based on Marc Canter’s authorised biography Reckless Road: Guns N’ Roses And The Making Of Appetite For Destruction, which chronicles the iconic rock band’s formation and the recording of their classic 1987 debut album.
Writing on fan messageboard MyGNRForum, Canter revealed that the film has been in the works for “around four months”.
“No one has been cast at this point but I would expect to see a few A list people in the cast,” Canter revealed. “Just working on the perfect script.”
“When the script is done the band will be able to look at it and help fix things that are off a bit. The goal is to get it right,” Canter added.
Responding to queries from concerned fans, Canter insisted that the film won’t offer a clichéd portrayal of rock stardom like 2001’s Rock Star, in which Mark Wahlberg played a tribute singer who becomes frontman of the band he idolises.
“When you find out who is making the movie, you will then understand that it will be very cool,” Canter explained. “I’m proud of all the hard work that was put into this project and it’s just going to kick ass. In no way will it be a cheesy movie like Rock Star.”
In July of this year Guns ‘N Roses released a 3D concert film titled Appetite For Democracy 3D: Live From The Hard Rock Casino. In April, the band’s frontman Axl Rose claimed that Guns ‘N Roses have two new albums almost ready for release.
