Fox Searchlight In Negotiations to Make Biopic About Punk Band The Ramones

Biopic About Legendary Punk Band Ramones in the Works

I'll just say it: Gabba Gabba Hey! Fox Searchlight is in negotiations to produce a biopic about The Ramones, the seminal punk band formed in the '70s and best known for songs like "I Wanna be Sedated," "Blitzkrieg Bop," and "Rockaway Beach."

The movie will be based on the not-yet-published book I Slept With Joey Ramone by Joey's brother Mickey Leigh, and will center around Joey's life and the early days of the band — widely considered to be the first punk rock group.

I'm guessing we'll also get to see the band's infighting, health and drug problems, right up to the recent deaths of founders Joey, Johnny, and Dee Dee between 2001 and 2004. What I know for certain is that the movie will have an amazing soundtrack.
