Movie is currently in production
Netflix is nearing a deal to distribute a Kiss biopic that’s currently in the works. Deadline reports that the film, titled Shout It Out Loud, went into a bidding war with the streamer coming out on top.
The film will be directed by Norwegian filmmaker Joachim Rønning with the script penned by Ole Sanders. The pic will be a co-production of Mark Canton’s Atmosphere Entertainment and Universal Music Group with close cooperation with band leaders Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley.
The film will focus on Simmons and Stanley’s origins as kids from Queens who formed an unlikely friendship that morphed into Kiss after enlisting guitarist Ace Frehley and drummer Peter Criss. The band’s anthems will be a big part of the movie as they overcame the “hair” band era and became a mega force in rock and roll.
More details as it becomes available.
