A KISS biopic is due to arrive around the same time the band takes its final curtain.
KISS’s longtime manager Doc McGhee spilled the news in a recent interview on Rock Talk.
“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.”
Meaning, if all goes to schedule, it’ll coincide with what is being billed as KISS’ last-ever show on July 17, 2021, at a yet-to-be-announced venue in New York City.
It seems that a biopic isn’t the only project in the works.
In the same interview, McGhee said a documentary about the band was also in the pipeline.
KISS have asked fans to submit to filmmakers: “rare and compelling KISS-related media,” including “never-before-seen footage of the band onstage or offstage during the 1970s, still photographs or video of the band in the ’70s trying to conceal their identity, unscripted, candid or revealing moments between band members, onstage or off, from any era” and “obscure local or international TV/radio interviews or news reports from the 1970s, ‘80s or ‘90s.”
