Kiss biopic ‘Shout It Out Loud’ coming to Netflix in ’24


Kiss, the rock band behind hits such as “Rock and Roll All Nite” and “Detroit Rock City,” are the latest musicians to get the biopic treatment.

A film documenting the early days of the New York City-formed outfit is expected to premiere on Netflix in 2024.

The band’s longtime manager Doc McGhee offered an update about the project, which has been in the works since 2021.

Titled “Shout It Out Loud,” the film is named after a track from the group’s 1976 gold-selling opus, “Destroyer.”

“It’s a biopic about the first four years of Kiss. We’re just starting it now,” he said during an interview on The Rock Experience With Mike Brunn. “We’ve already sold it, (the deal is) already done, we have a director. That’s moving along and that’ll come in ’24.”

While Joachim Ronning, whose credits include “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” was initially attached to helm the film, McGhee named McG as the director.

The veteran music video auteur, whose real name is Joseph McGinty Nichol, has films such as “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle” and Netflix’s forthcoming “Family Leave” to his credit.

Casting has yet to be announced, but the main roles will focus on Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Peter Criss and Ace Frehley, and the formation of the group in 1972.

Grammy-nominated music video director Ole Sanders worked on the script with Simmons and Stanley after William Blake Herron delivered an early draft, according to Loudwire.

Kiss was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.
