Despite Slash's lifelong love of film, he doesn't see Guns N' Roses ever pursuing a movie project.

The guitarist, who did the soundtrack for and served as a producer on the new horror film The Breach, tells MovieMaker in a new conversation that music biopics just aren't his thing.

GNR has collectively declined opportunities to explore a film about their career, and even Slash himself was offered a movie deal back in 2007 after his autobiography was published.

"We're sort of just not interested," he said. "And I can't imagine trying to find some actors that can portray the band properly. I mean, rock 'n' roll movies suffer from being just super, super corny and unrealistic anyway, as a whole."

He continued: "There's very few really good rock 'n' roll movies. So I would hate to sell ourselves out with some sort of script that supposed to depict our history. I don't see it happening."
