A new biopic is in the works, and this one’s all about The Ramones and the rise of the punk movement. Enter: I Slept With Joey Ramone.

The 2009 memoir was written by Joey’s brother Mickey Leigh and will be adapted for the big screen by director Nick Cassavetes, says The Hollywood Reporter.

According to producer Gene Kirkwood (Rocky, The Defiant Ones), "Nick is digging deep with Mickey Leigh.” He continues, “The plan is he and Mickey will discover the talent and put a real band together.”

Further details are sparse, but we’ll keep you posted as they arise. In the meantime, some other rock movies are in the works. Check out who’s been cast to play Motley Crue in The Dirt and watch the first trailer for Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody biopic!
