It’s So Easy And Other Lies is currently in production with financing provided by Scatena & Rosner Films.

Christopher Duddy is directing and produces with Daniel Zirilli, McKagan and Steven G Kaplan. Vision Films managing director and CEO Lise Romanoff, Gato Scatena, Jordan Rosner, Birgit Stein, Hans Stangl and Katherine Thomson serve as executive producers.

“Duff’s remarkable life will be the ultimate insider rock n’ roll documentary chronicling Duff’s rise as a punk-rock teen prodigy from Seattle, to the heights of super-stardom as a founding member of Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver, to the depths of substance abuse and addiction,” said XLrator CEO Barry Gordon.

“Vision Films is excited to be distributing It’s So Easy globally,” said Romanoff. “The film is a one-of-a-kind look into the life of one of the most iconic musicians in rock history.”
