Motley Crue fans will have to wait until 2004 for another tour, putting an end to rumors the band might join this summer's Ozzfest lineup. Says founding bassist Nikki Sixx, "As far as the question being asked over and over about Ozzfest, at this time there are no plans of doing any kind of tour 'til next year for Motley Crue."

However, Motley Crue will proceed with plans to turn the band's 2001 best-selling autobiography "The Dirt," into a feature-length film. "We signed Rich Wilkes, the writer from 'XXX' and 'XXX 2' to write our movie script," posts Sixx on the Crue's official Web site. "He's a huge fan of rock'n'roll and is chomping to get started. We're still working with Paramount Pictures and MTV Films, so I feel really good about the team. Next up is picking the right director."

Aside from the film, Sixx is currently focusing his attention on recording with his new band, Brides Of Destruction, which also consists of former L.A. Guns guitarist Tracii Guns, Adema drummer Kris Kohls, short-lived Crue vocalist John Corabi (now on guitar), and vocalist London LeGrand.

In related news, Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil make his reality series debut tonight (Jan. 9) alongside MC Hammer, Corey Feldman, and Emmanuel Lewis as one of seven ex-super stars in the WB show "The Surreal Life." Neil also made news last week after he joined former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler and Quiet Riot singer Kevin DuBrow onstage for Led Zeppelin and ZZ Top covers on New Year's Eve at the Las Vegas strip club Jaguar's.
