Sorry Guns N Roses fans. Iconic guitarist Slash says no biopic movie is comin anytime soon.

Queen/Elton/MJ

But what about Queen, Elton and MJ? Bohemian Rhapsody, and Rocketman were WILDLY successful and received well. Brian May from Queen said their movie made so much money they want to do another! The highly anticipated Michael Jackson biopic has already cast their Michael. 

No Biopic Is Comin

This week, Slash came clean and share why we will NEVER see a Guns N Roses movie. According to the Movie Maker website Slash shares:

“Yeah. That’s, that’s a that’s a funny one. People come to make the Guns N Roses movie. And then I have people coming to me about doing a movie — I think it was after I wrote my book. It’s just not something that — collectively we’re sort of just not interested. And I can’t imagine trying to find some actors that can portray the band properly. I mean, rock’n’roll movies suffer from being just super, super corny and unrealistic anyway, as a whole. There’s very few really good rock ‘n’ roll movies. So I would hate to sell us out ourselves out with some sort of script that’s supposed to depict our history. I don’t see it happening.” Same goes for a solo Slash movie? “No, I definitely don’t want to do that,” he says.

There we have it. Slash says no biopic is comin. As Slash says: So I would hate to sell us out ourselves out. But. you CAN buy a Guns N Roses hoodie on their website!

Speaking of movies, here’s a list of biopic movies that we found.  How many have you seen? (From Rotten Tomatoes.)

    This one was an EYE opener, sharing the real and sad life, of the amazing Tina Turner, who is AMAZING LIVE.

    Critics Consensus: With a fascinating real-life story and powerhouse performances from Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne, What’s Love Got to Do With It? is a can’t miss biopic.

  • Brian Wilson-Love And Mercy

    Brian Wilson

    LOS ANGELES, CA – FEBRUARY 12: Musician Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys performs onstage at the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards held at Staples Center on February 12, 2012 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images)

    I never saw this story about the iconic genius, Brian Wilson, of the Beach Boys.

    Critics Consensus: As unconventional and unwieldy as the life and legacy it honors, Love & Mercy should prove moving for Brian Wilson fans while still satisfying neophytes.
    Synopsis: In the late 1960s, the Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson stops touring, produces “Pet Sounds” and begins to lose his grip… [More]

    I can’t leave this out.

    Critics Consensus: Unapologetically sweet and maybe even a little corny, The Sound of Music will win over all but the most cynical filmgoers with its classic songs and irresistible warmth.
    Synopsis: A tuneful, heartwarming story, it is based on the real life story of the Von Trapp Family singers, one of… [More]

  • La Bamba-Ritchie Valens Story

    Watching this, I forgot that Lou Diamond Phillips was not Ritchie Valens.

    Critics Consensus: Elevated by a perceptive performance by a perfectly cast Lou Diamond Phillips, La Bamba distills its subject’s creative energy — and reflects his music’s enduring appeal.

  • Elvis-Starring Austin Butler

    Critics Consensus: The standard rock biopic formula gets all shook up in Elvis, with Baz Luhrmann’s dazzling energy and style perfectly complemented by Austin Butler’s outstanding lead performance.

    Critics Consensus: Bohemian Rhapsody hits a handful of high notes, but as an in-depth look at a beloved band, it offers more of a medley than a true greatest hits collection.
