Martin Scorsese to direct Ramones biopic

Posted By on Tue, Sep 2, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Martin Scorsese has signed on to direct a feature film about Queens, New York punk pioneers the Ramones, according to reports in Billboard, Rolling Stone, and other publications over the last several days. There are no actors or even a screenwriter attached to the project yet. But the news of lifelong music-obsessive Scorsese telling the Ramones' story alone is cause for celebration. And it's a good excuse to post vintage clips of the Ramones in all their glory.

Also in the works are a theatrical production, a documentary film and a new book about the band, all in recognition of the 40th anniversary of the Ramones' self-titled debut album in 2016.
