Martin Scorsese to direct Ramones film

Contributed by mahalfy. Posted by johng on Thursday, August 28, 2014 at 3:05 PM (EDT)
Ramones The estate of The Ramones has announced that famed director Martin Scorsese intends to film a Ramones feature. The work will not be a documentary. At this time, it seems that Scorsese plans to create a dramatization of the Ramones story.

According to Linda Ramone, wife of Johnny Ramone, this has now become possible because she is now on pleasant terms with Mickey Leigh, brother of Joey Ramone, thus making certain business deals possible. At this time, it is unclear if Linda Ramone and Leigh's shares of the Ramones estate adds up to the entire enterprise, or just a majority stake. According to various sources, the need for reconciliation stems from the bad blood that existed between Johnny Ramone and Joey Ramone, which, of course, is usually pinpointed to when Johnny Ramone started dating Linda, following Linda's relationship with Joey.

The estate has also stated that there are early plans to create a musical based on the Ramones.
