RAMONES Biopic In The Works

Billboard.com reports that Fox Searchlight is in negotiations to board a project about the life of the RAMONES, based on the upcoming memoir "I Slept With Joey Ramone", by the musician's brother, and featuring the band's tunes.

The project, which initially had been conceived independently under manager-producer Rory Rosegarten, would get a significant boost with the involvement of the 20th Century Fox unit.

Written by Joey Ramone's brother Mickey Leigh and longtime punk writer and RAMONES chronicler Legs McNeil, it centers on the life of Joey Ramone, a.k.a. Jeffrey Hyman, the lead singer of the seminal punk act. The memoir is scheduled to be published by Simon & Schuster imprint Fireside in December.
