Slash says Guns n' Roses biopic "doesn't even seem possible"

If there's any band who's story seems ready-made for a biopic, it's Guns n' Roses. But Slash isn't particularly interested in making one about the band apparently. 

In a new interview, the guitarist suggested the difficulty in casting a movie is enough of a reason to not even bother considering it. Slash ruled against a biopic even after having seen Motley Crue's recently released 'The Dirt'.

"I thought the Motley movie was great, 'cause I just saw it a couple of days ago. It really took me back to the early days in the '80s and all the way through their career, because I just remember everything that happened along the way. And then it gave me some insights as to internal details that I wasn't really aware of. I thought that came out great."

"I wouldn't wanna do a Guns movie like that. I couldn't imagine trying to find somebody to play the different members of the band. It just doesn't even seem possible," he said.

Slash would prefer an official documentary that incorporates performances recorded of the last tour Slash did with the band before the reunion tour in 2016.

"I think we have a lot of concert footage from the '90s in the can — like, 24-7 footage from 1991 to 1994, of just every day on the road with Guns N' Roses. It's been sitting in a vault for years. And I would love for that to be edited at some point and put out. So we'll see if that ever happens."

In the interview, Slash also confirmed that GnR would go back into the studio after they completed a new, unannounced tour in October.
