Following recent movies chronicling the careers of artists such as James Brown, Jimi Hendrix, Ian Dury and Joy Division, it seems that Guns N Roses will be the latest to receive the Hollywood treatment, as the author of the 2007 book, "Reckless Road," Marc Canter, has confirmed that talks are underway to turn the book into a movie, which will feature as-yet unconfirmed "A-list" actors. Speaking to Mygnrforum.com, the writer said:

"I do have a big say-so on the script, which is still being put together now, but so far it's looking cool.

"I am going to see that everyone in the cast is doing their job and doing justice to the band. Since I was there, I know what the dialog was between the band for many of the events that took place.

"When you find out who is making the movie, you will then understand that it will be very cool. I'm proud of all the hard work that was put into this project and it's just going to kick ass. In no way will it be a cheesy movie like Rock Star."

The writer confirmed that Axl Rose has not pledged his support to the project as of yet, because he does not want to associate himself with the old band, though the singer will be allowed to review the script, as will the other band members of the era. Canter added:

"Axl doesn't support anything to do with the old band except playing their songs live. However, I do think he will be happy with the fact that it will clear up some stories that have been said about him from those days that were told incompletely. So setting the record straight on some of those events will be a good thing for him to see happen.

"Axl should know by now that I have his back and that it will be done right. If I'm involved in a GNR project, then you know I have their backs. There is a great story about the birth of the band which I was very much involved in.

"This has nothing to do with where the band is today. The history is very important and that's why Axl was the one who was most supportive of me documenting what they were doing when they first started out."
