The story behind Guns N' Roses' debut album is headed to the big screen. Marc Canter says his 2007 book Reckless Road: Guns N' Roses and the Making of 'Appetite for Destruction' is being turned into a movie.  He says it will be a biopic rather than a documentary, and expects some big names to sign on once the script is finished. 

Canter says he even thinks GNR frontman Axl Rose will be happy with the project, even though the singer is known for not supporting anything to do with the original version of the band. 

Canter spent a lot of time with Guns N' Roses in the early days as a childhood friend of Slash and the group's official photographer.  He says the movie will set the record straight on stories about the band that have so far been "told incompletely."
