Lemmy Kilmister, the frontman of iconic English rock band Motörhead, lived a full and wild life, fit for any movie screen.
Now, a new Lemmy biopic directed by Greg Oliver is on the way, giving fans of the band a glimpse into some of his most avid shenanigans which are set to make you question how Kilmister made it to the ripe age of 70.
A new biopic about the late great Lemmy Kilmister is in the works, directed by Greg Oliver, who was also responsible for the 2010 documentary Lemmy.
The biopic will share the same name as Oliver’s 2010 documentary and will focus on Killmister’s early life before he became the frontman and most grizzled cog in the Motörhead machine. In a statement about the upcoming film, Oliver stated:
“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.”
Lemmy has been written by Medeni Griffiths and Greg Oliver and will be produced by Andre Relis and Damon Lane, with executive production from Motörhead’s manager Todd Singerman as well as Steffan Chirazi. With such a talented team behind the film, we are sure they will bring true justice to the name of Lemmy Kilmister, breathing new life into his incredible legacy which oozes sex, drugs, and rock and roll.
Time will only tell what inconceivable tales the biopic will tell. Perhaps the time he was arrested for smuggling amphetamine sulphate in his pants. Or maybe, when he had sex with all five of his former bandmate’s girlfriends as an act of revenge for being kicked out of the band. Whatever it is, Lemmy is sure to leave you shocked, impressed, or a little bit of both.
