Bret Michaels Announces Movie Biopic Plans!

“I Want To Tell The Story,” Says The Poison Frontman...

Want the inside scoop on Bret Michaels?

Well, you’re in luck because the rock superstar has announced plans to reveal ALL on the big screen!

Following in the footsteps of music legends before him, including Madonna, Whitney Houston and Beyonce, the Poison frontman is the latest star to try his hand at acting.

“I want to tell the story,” he told The Columbus Dispatch.

“Mostly, when you see rock movies, it has to be this over-the-top thing. I want to give people a Bret Michaels movie where they see that my life is a comedy of errors. I also want to show my fans how to get through the kind of troubles that would leave most people flat on the floor.”

The upcoming rags-to-riches flick will give viewers an insight into his childhood days in Pittsburgh, forming his first bands, through to his brain haemorrhage in 2010 - which almost killed him.

And talking of health fears, the 49-year-old, who also survived heart surgery last year, says coming so close to death has majorly changed his view on life.

“Now, I just take it moment by moment,” he added.

“I’m one of those guys hit by lightning. I see the big picture. Everything is in perspective now.”
