While news of a KISS movie has already been floating around for some time, it has recently been confirmed that said biopic will be released on Netflix come 2024.
News of this release comes from the band’s manager Doc McGhee. During a conversation with The Rock Experience With Mike Brunn, McGhee revealed that the KISS movie will be out next year. In regard to this KISS movie, here is what McGhee said (as transcribed by Heavy Consequence):
“It’s a biopic about the first four years of KISS. We’re just starting it now.
“We’ve already sold it, [the deal is] already done, we have a director. That’s moving along and that’ll come in ’24.”
This KISS movie is titled Shout It Out Loud and is directed by Joachim Rønning.
The biopic will cover the first four years of the band’s career; at the time of this writing, there has been no confirmation as to who will play the members of KISS. How excited are you to see this KISS biopic when it finally comes to Netflix? Who are some other heavy metal bands and artists you think deserve the biopic treatment?
When asked about his own biopic last year, heavy metal legend Ozzy Osbourne said that he very much does not want Johnny Depp to play him. You can read more about that story by following this link here.
In other KISS-related news, the band recently confirmed when the final performances of their farewell tour will take place. The last two shows of the tour will take place on December 1st and the 2nd, in New York City at Madison Square Garden. Per KISS singer Paul Stanley, he says: “Those are the last two shows of the band. We’re finishing up where we started.”
When it comes to those who question if this is really the end of KISS touring, Stanley says: “Some people have kind of snickered and said ‘Oh this End of the Road Tour has gone on for years.’ Yeah, we lost two and a half years to COVID; we would have been done already. So yes, this is the end.”
