Martin Scorsese to direct movie on The Ramones
Last Sunday, the annual Johnny Ramone tribute at Hollywood Forever in L.A. yielded more than just admiration for the punk pioneers The Ramones. Billboard reports that Martin Scorsese is attached to direct a movie about the band.
No other details are available about the project, beyond the fact that it will be due in 2016. But Jeff Jampol, who manages the band's estate, said that "authenticity is the foundation of everything" when it comes to celebrating the band's legacy. "And luckily," he added, "when you have a really genius artist like the Ramones you don't have to spin it."
The Ramones' last remaining original member, former drummer Tommy Ramone, died earlier this year.
