"The Ace Frehley Story" directed by Martin Scorsese

Post by StillAlive »

"I'm not even thinking about a KISS movie, I'm thinking about an Ace Frehley movie. I think I'm the most interesting member of the four founding members. I have the best story and the most interesting life. Growing up in the Bronx. Poor, lower middle class, living in a one bedroom apartment. Next thing you know, I'm in one of the biggest rock groups in the world. That's a HUGE success story. I've already been pitching. I was talking to the president of Hasbro. They did all the Transformers movies. They made billions off those films. Hasbro has billions of dollars. I told those guys, hey we gotta do an Ace Frehley movie and let's get Scorsese to direct it. He grew up in the Bronx and he would 'get it' better than any other director. So I planted the seed, we'll see what happens. Maybe in a couple years you know, we'll have "The Ace Frehley Story". I'm not concerned with the KISS story."

Old news! It was ridiculous when he said it. There probably won't be a movie about Kiss either. The market is small for one.

An Ace biopic almost happened in the early 2000's.

I even remember reading about the actor that was slated to play him and the director of the film.

Yes he is deluded as someone mentioned (probably a few have mentioned that by the time this posts), which is why I want this movie and yes by Scorsese with Jim Carrey as Ace. You want this too.

Imagine Ace watching slack jawed at a movie about his life in the 70’s and 80’s.
Two decades he has ZERO recollection of. Blurting out repeatedly….

I got a new girlfriend and I’ve been sober for seven years. (Falls off the stage)

The finale of the movie can be the 2002 birthday bash where Ace showed up looking like a zombie, fed his fans with a cold hot dog and then set off the fire alarm so he could go home!

The only way I can see something like that working is if it was about all four of them. They definitely have stories to tell. Show Paul being bullied and learning guitar as a "fuck you" to the bullies; show Gene looking at comics and staying up to watch monster movies on the late show, not knowing a word of English but utterly captivated by these worlds of fantasy; show Peter running with gangs and fucking shit up; show Ace roadie-ing with Hendrix and seeing UFOs everywhere. Final scene is them walking on stage at the Coventry.

An Ace Frehley film maybe could work if it is NOT an "Ace Frehley" film, but a movie loosely based on his life (while adding some good fictional drama). People would probably be interested in a film about a Bronx 60s kid who was in gangs, got into trouble, started on music, and became successful while still causing trouble, and all his ups and downs. They would not, however, be interested in an "Ace Frehley" movie.

So you're proposing a film based on Ace's life but that isn't actually about Ace, rather it's about a guy who has lived Ace's life but isn't actually Ace?

My point is that if you're making a movie about a kid like Ace Frehley, growing up in the Bronx, running in gangs, getting into trouble, then joining a band and becoming a rock star... why not just call the kid Ace Frehley and be done with it? People aren't going to be less interested in the story just because the main character is Ace and not a fictionalised version of him. Just seems like a pointless extra step in the process.

Gene as an immigrant, teetotaler and a rock star with heaps of self control would certainly make for a more original movie than Ace and his stereotypical substance abuse, car wrecks and financial troubles.

Spot on.
Born in Israel (his mother a concentration camp survivor), immigrated to USA, inspired by the Beatles, co-founded KISS.
Not to mention dating Cher, Diana Ross and eventually marrying a Playboy Playmate.
Successful television series (Gene Simmons Family Jewels), still touring (spitting blood & fire) and making millions at age 72.
Literally a rags to riches Hollywood story.

Ace's story is a dime a dozen: poor kid joins band, becomes rock star, self destructs.
He's not getting any of the Hasbro "billions" for that. Thinking Scorsese would be interested is just bat-shit crazy.

People would probably be interested in a film about a Bronx 60s kid who was in gangs, got into trouble, started on music, and became successful while still causing trouble, and all his ups and downs. They would not, however, be interested in an "Ace Frehley" movie.
So you're proposing a film based on Ace's life but that isn't actually about Ace, rather it's about a guy who has lived Ace's life but isn't actually Ace?

Coming soon, "Spaceship Ride: the Mace Hayley Story!"
I thought the joke was going to be...the Tommy Thayer story.
Nah, that would be the Conny Mayer story since it apparently makes good business sense to make movies about people but be all coy about it for some reason.
