It would start with the cheering of tens of thousands of fans and end with the boos received at last week's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame event, but a Guns N' Roses biopic movie is said to be in the works.

Drummer Matt Sorum has revealed that he is in discussions about a forthcoming movie during an interview with VH1.

"I've talked about doing a screenplay, and that's actually something that I'm in talks about with a couple of pretty big people.," he told the TV channel, "If you look at rock and roll movies, they've never been done right... If there was a film about Guns N' Roses, the thing about Guns N' Roses that was different than all the butt rock bands in Hollywood was that it was down and dirty and punk rock and real.

"As much as anyone wants to say they want to try to lump it in with hair metal, it never was because it was a different kind of energy. There was a much sort of more street, dark undercurrent happening that could be great on film."

No other members of the band have been linked with the project, and it seems unlikely that Axl Rose would contribute, after refusing to attend the band's Hall of Fame induction, saying he did not want to attend an event where he was neither 'wanted or respected'.
