Producer: Status of Film Credits Won't Stop Cadillac’s KISS Movie

Fellows is working on the project with Philip Steuer, producer of the “Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” and Mark Johnson, producer of “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul.”

The movie is based upon how KISS was invited to not only visit the quiet, unassuming town of Cadillac but to meet with civic leaders, be the toast of the homecoming parade and put on a rock concert at the high school in 1975.

Cadillac High School assistant football coach Jim Neff was successful in convincing head coach Dave Brines to start playing KISS records in the locker room prior to every game in an effort to break a slump. The change in focus, along with a few lineup changes, were credited with helping the team turn things around and return to their winning ways.

Neff wrote a letter to the band's management telling them how the music helped them get pumped up to win games. He was stunned to receive a phone call directly from Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley.
