Netflix Nearing Deal For KISS Biopic

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

Netflix is closing a deal for “Shout It Out Loud,” a biopic about hard rock band KISS.

Norwegian filmmaker Joachim Ronning (“Kon-Tiki,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”) will direct from a script by Ole Sanders while Atmosphere Entertainment and Universal Music Group will produce.

Bandleaders Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley will have close co-operation in the project and their concert-arena anthems ranging from “I Was Made For Lovin’ You” and “Rock and Roll All Nite” to “Beth” and “Detroit Rock City” will play a major part.

The story follows two misfit kids from Queens who formed an unlikely friendship and starting KISS after enlisting guitarist Ace Frehley and drummer Peter Criss. The group set themselves apart with iconic makeup and elaborate costumes.
