Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson has been cast to portray Joey Ramone in a forthcoming biopic about the late Ramones singer, media outlets confirmed on Thursday.

To be titled, I Slept With Joey Ramone, the film will arrive on Netflix at a date yet to be determined. The film is based on Mickey Leigh’s 2010 memoir by the same name, and will reportedly be directed by Jason Orley, who worked with Davidson on previous projects including Big Time Adolescence and Pete Davidson: Alive From New York.

STXfilms chairman Adam Fogelson said of the film in a press statement,

When you share a bed with someone — and not just a bed, but a childhood, a family, and a lifetime — you know that person better than anybody else. Mickey Leigh not only collaborated with his big brother’s band — he has irreplaceable memories of and insights into Joey Ramone, having supported him when no one else would and witnessed him overcome adversity in the most dramatic way. ‘I Slept with Joey Ramone’ is a great rock anthem that will make an equally great rock biopic, set apart by a universal story of family. Pete is perfect for this role and we’re excited he and Jason will be bringing this icon of rock to life and thrilled to be collaborating once again with our friends at Netflix.
