This was more or less inevitable, I guess. From the showbiz trades this morning: Biopic of Iconic Motorhead Frontman Lemmy Kilmister in the Works Ian Fraser Kilmister, the late lead singer of Motörhead, one of rock's legendary hard-living frontmen and a figure recognised globally as just "Lemmy," is getting the biopic treatment. The upcoming film, Lemmy, is to be directed by Greg Olliver, who spent three years following Motörhead and Kilmister — who passed away in 2015 aged 70 — for the 2010 documentary of the same name. The new project, which will be introduced to buyers by VMI Worldwide at the upcoming virtual Cannes market, will center on Kilmister — regarded as a godfather of heavy metal — and his adventures as a "vanguard and talisman of the loudest, dirtiest and most liberated rock ’n’ roll band in the world." Motörhead Frontman Lemmy Kilmister Is Getting a Biopic Movie "Everything you've heard about Lemmy is probably true... not because he was embracing rock n' roll clichés, but because he was creating them," Olliver said of the beloved musician. He adds: "But behind that steely-eyed façade of rock n' roll was also a compelling, complicated and lion-hearted man who stayed the course and never gave up playing the music that made him happy. 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."
