The Kiss Biopic is Coming to Netflix in 2024
According to longtime Kiss manager Doc McGhee, the rights for the band’s band’s upcoming biopic, Shout It Out Loud, was sold to Netflix. He discussed it on The Rock Experience With Mike Brunn.
“We’re just starting it now. We’ve already sold it. [The deal is] already done… So that’s moving along. And that’ll come in ’24.”
It will be directed by Joachim Rønning, who has worked on Kon-Tiki, Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Ole Sanders wrote the script.
In 2021, McGhee said:
“Mark Canton, who is a very, very powerful producer and production company who has the TV series ‘Power’ and ‘Ghost’ and all that stuff, and he was a president of Sony and all that, he’s done 300 films — a really, really great guy — his team and Universal Music and ourselves have partnered up with Joachim Rønning, who is a very sought-after director that did things like ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’, and ‘Kon-Tiki’ was up for an Academy Award. And the script is about the first four years of Kiss. Basically, it’s before they were famous — it was up to Cadillac High, that kind of thing,” referring to the October 1975 concert Kiss played in a high school gym in Cadillac, Michigan. “And I think it’s a very interesting look at the formation of Kiss, the mindset of how that came about, the social pressure that everybody was in in the ’60s and ’70s that brought something like Kiss to the forefront, that it could actually happen. So it’s a very interesting, and I think it’s a well-written movie. And our partners right now is Netflix. It’ll be a theatrical release, then Netflix.”
Kiss will play their final two live shows on December 1 and 2 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. They were supposed to wrap things up in 2021, but the pandemic rearranged that schedule.
