Los Angeles - Guns N' Roses will be the subject of a new movie.

The Welcome to the Jungle rockers' will have their story played out on screen when the film - which is based on Marc Canters' 2008 biography, Reckless Road: Guns N' Roses and the Making of Appetite for Destruction - hits cinemas, and the author has promised the picture will be "very cool" and done "with no short cuts.

Posting on a fan forum, he wrote: "I do have a big say so on the script which is still being put together now but so far 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 dialogue 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. There really is such a great story here that even the outtakes will be great.

"The truth is a movie could be made just from Hell Tour alone which was only about a week or so long."

Though frontman Axl Rose won't be involved with the film, he and his bandmates will get to review the script and "help fix things that are off a bit".

The author added in his post: "The goal is to get it right.

"As you all know 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."
