A biographical film about Joey Ramone of The Ramones is going to be produced by Netflix and STXfilms! The biopic will be called “I Slept With Joey Ramone”, in the role of Joey Ramone we will find Pete Davidson and it will be directed by Jason Orley, who previously worked with Davidson on the 2019 feature film “Big Time Adolescence”. “I Slept With Joey Ramone” will be made with the cooperation and support of Joey Ramone’s estate and is based on the memoir of the same name, written by his brother Mickey Leigh. 

Adam Fogelson, chairman of STXfilms, said: “When you share a bed with someone — and not just a bed, but a childhood, a family, and a lifetime — you know that person better than anybody else. Mickey Leigh not only collaborated with his big brother’s band — he has irreplaceable memories of and insights into Joey Ramone, having supported him when no one else would and witnessed him overcome adversity in the most dramatic way. ‘I Slept With Joey Ramone’ is a great rock anthem that will make an equally great rock biopic, set apart by a universal story of family. Pete is perfect for this role and we’re excited he and Jason will be bringing this icon of rock to life and thrilled to be collaborating once again with our friends at Netflix.”

Joey Ramone died in April 2001 after a seven-year battle with lymphoma.
