KISS working on biopic

KISS manager Doc McGhee has confirmed the classic rock band are working on a biopic.

“There’s two things: we have a documentary that we’re doing right now and we’re in the middle of working on a KISS biopic, so more news will come on that,” McGhee tells Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon. “It’s scripted. I can tell you it’s with Mark Canton, so he’s a great, great producer and a really good guy.

“Hopefully, in the next week, we’ll have a company behind it, and we’ll start finishing the script, and hopefully by the time we end we’ll have a movie finished for July of next year.”

KISS’ plans follow in the shadow of hugely successful rock biopics in recent years on Queen (“Bohemian Rhapsody”) and Motley Crue (”The Dirt”), among others.

According to McGhee, the group are aiming to release the project in sync with the finale of the End Of The Road farewell tour, which will wrap up in New York City on July 21, 2021 at a venue to be announced.

KISS launched the 2020 leg of the farewell series in Manchester, NH on February 1.
