The upcoming KISS biopic Shout It Out Loud will focus on the band’s early years, according to longtime manager Doc McGhee. McGhee says the script for the film is “completely done” and will focus on “the first four years of KISS” before they were a household name.

Netflix has picked up the film, which will be directed by Joachim Ronning of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

No casting for the movie has been announced yet.

What other bands would make for a great biopic?  Is it better for a biopic to focus on a specific time, or should they be career-spanning like Bohemian Rhapsody?
