    Default MARTIN SCORSESE Planning To Direct Movie About RAMONES

    Mods, feel free to move

    August 29, 2014

    According to The Pulse Of Radio, Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese is planning to direct a movie about the legendary punk band the RAMONES. There is no timetable or writer for the film yet, which Scorsese could shoot after he finishes his upcoming project, "Silence", next year. The news about the movie comes as the managers of the group's estate have revealed plans to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their self-titled debut album in 2016.

    Those plans include a documentary separate from Scorsese's film, a play and a book about the band's early years.

    All four of the original RAMONES are now dead, with the last, drummer Tommy Ramone, passing away earlier this year.

    Rob Zombie just hosted a tribute to guitarist Johnny Ramone in Los Angeles to mark the 10th anniversary of his passing.

    Johnny's portion of the RAMONES estate is handled by his widow Linda, while late singer Joey Ramone's interests are now handled by his brother Mickey.

    Although the two sides have had disputes in the past, they are now said to be "moving in one direction together as a team" with regards to the 40th-anniversary plans.

    Probably will be a real quick movie.

    Love Ramones been a huge fan for ages just recently bought an official 1978 old metal " Road To Ruin " lunch box from a thrift store was super stoked to find it there.

    Looking forward to this with Scorsese it will be done right. I'm guessing he'll use portions from Johnny and Dee Dee' s book's tons of stuff the band went through it'll be a dramatic interesting story for sure.

    this could be tremendous if it's done right

    personally I'm getting tired of autobiographical movies or "movies based on a true story" that mess with the facts in order to make the story "better"

    Dallas Buyers Club, Argo, American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Saving Mr Banks, Mandela, shoot even We Bought a Zoo got the Hollywood treatment

    the Ramones were gritty and real and deserve and unflinching treatment
