Empire Speculation: Scorsese is Attached to the Ramones Biopic

by Rachel Baker on August 28, 2014

Empire is asking the question whether Martin Scorsese is attached to a Ramones Biopic to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the band’s formation and their first album.

There are a few links in the article that will prove as evidence to Empire’s speculation.

Scorsese Attached To Ramones Biopic?

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the formation of seminal New York punk rockers The Ramones, and in another two years it’ll be the 40th anniversary of their first album. There is, as you might expect, considerable activity beginning to bubble in the form of planned Ramones celebrations, not least of which, according to Billboard, is a biopic that Martin Scorsese may be attached to direct.

Billboard drop the information almost casually into a larger piece about last weekend’s Johnny Ramone tribute at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, attended by Guns N’Roses’ Duff McKagen and The Clash’s Steve Jones, and hosted by Rob Zombie. There are no further details, but The Wrap have since chimed in with their own unnamed source confirming Scorsese’s interest in the film.
