The biographical documentary ‘It’s So Easy and Other Lies,’ which will be directed by Christopher Duddy, will be produced by Rainstorm Entertainment. The production date to begin shooting the film, which will be based on the life story of former Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan, is scheduled for the end of this year.
‘It’s So Easy and Other Lies’ is based on McKagan’s best-selling autobiography of the same name. It will document the life of one of the founding members of the infamous late 1980s rock band, as well as Velvet Revolver. The film will document the bassist’s rise to fortune and fame, his struggles with alcoholism and drug addiction, his crash and burn and his transformation through sobriety.
The book was one of last year’s best sellers. The film is being targeted to not only the book’s fan base, but to fans of his bands as well, which also include Loaded. McKagan’s bands have sold a combined 100 million albums worldwide.
