Ramones was founded in Queens, New York in 1974 and is considered the first player in the world to play punk rock. The unrelated members of the group bore the artistic nicknames “Ramon,” which gave the group its name. In 1976, thanks to the concerts of this band in Great Britain, the English punk scene was born. Ramones played together until 1996. Today, none of the group’s founders is alive. Joy Ramon died in 2001 due to cancer of the lymph system.
According to Variety, Joy’s heirs gave Ramon the green light to start production. The scenario “I slept with Joy Ramon” will be based on the same-titled diary written by singer’s brother Mickey Lee.
When you share a bed with someone – but not just the bed, but also childhood, family, and life – you know that person better than anyone else. Mickey Lee didn’t just collaborate with his older brother’s team. He also has irreplaceable memories and insight into the world of Joy Ramon. He backed him when no one else did, and watched how he overcame all adversity in a dramatic way. “I slept with Joey Ramone” is a fantastic rock anthem that will turn into an equally gigantic biopic. Being also a global family story – confirms the film’s producer, Adam Vogelson
The film’s director will be Jason Orly, who will also write the script with Pete Davidson. The two artists have already collaborated on the comedy “Big Time Adolescence” as of 2019, as well as on “Pete Davidson: Alive From New York”.
