Slash says he’s not interested in releasing a biopic about his ex-band, Guns N’ Roses
Slash recently branched out from his usual position as a guitar-ruling rock star and has taken on the role of film producer with his production company, Slasher Films, which produced last year’s horror film “Nothing Left to Fear,” starring Anne Heche. Despite the guitarist’s successful new venture into movies, Slash says he won’t use the opportunity to release a biopic on his former band, Guns N’ Roses.
“I would not like to see a Guns N’ Roses biopic,” Slash said in an interview with the Belfast Telegraph. “It’s really rare where you see actors portraying live musicians (well). I don’t think rock and roll translates in the movies, I don’t think they really get the gritty vibe of what it’s like.”
Switching topics to the scariest horror movie Slash has ever seen, he replied, “That’s an easy one. When I was a little kid, my mum took me to see ‘Night of the Living Dead,’ and the scariest scene was when the daughter grabs a spade and goes after her mom, and her mom can’t accept that her daughter’s a zombie; she’s pleading with her and doesn’t realize what she’s dealing with – and she gets spaded to death. That was just a very unnerving scene for me, and it clearly stuck with me all this time.”
“Nothing Left to Fear” is out on DVD and Blu-ray via Anchor Bay.
