Metal Maven is a dark romantic comedy that takes place in the
underbelly of the mid 80's metal music scene on the famous Sunset
Strip. Lead character Nikki Knight is an ambitious female band
manager, in a man's world. Nikki butts heads with rock stars and
executives while struggling to keep her own personal corruption in
check without losing her integrity and self worth.
This story dives
into the seedy world of rock and roll from a female perspective;
drugs, sex, rock and roll, wild parties, corrupt lawyers, record
deals, large egos and later, rehab. This movie is like "Walk The Line"
meets "Erin Brockovich" and "Almost Famous." It would be a great
vehicle for young Hollywood actors in their 20's such as, Claire Danes
or Kate Bosworth as Nikki Knight, Kevin Zeger as rock star Katt
Atonic, and Johnny Depp as Uncle Dougie.
Metal Maven follows Nikki
Knight in her career as a record store clerk, band manager and A&R
executive at a record label. She lives with the band she is managing
"Gag Order," a band similar to Guns and Roses. Nikki partners with
Melanie Steel who unbeknownst to Nikki, is a drug dealer. Melanie is
also having an affair with singer Katt Attonic, who is the girls'
management client, against Nikki's wishes, causing a riff between the
girls. Gag Order gets a record deal and leaves Nikki high and dry.
Melanie dies of a heroin overdose. Nikki, feeling lost and confused at
the end of act one, runs to her mentor and long time friend, Uncle
Dougie (a successful band manager) for advice. Nikki drinks and does
drugs to dull her pain and ends up in rehab, where she comes face to
face with Katt Attonic her mortal enemy. Nikki blames Nikki that he
was actually trying to help Mel and keep her secret. Nikki and Katt
fall in love, or so it seems.
Nikki takes Katt to the top, making him
a huge rock star. Katt's success delivers a repeat performance of the
horror of rock star egos. In act three, Nikki quits the business to
become a dog walker. After a long break and much piece of mind, she
decides that she wants back in.
In the end, Nikki follows her heart
without losing it. Nikki finds success and happiness without selling
out. Metal Maven is a story about chasing your dreams and facing your
demons. Because after all, don't all dreams come true in Hollywood? At
least in this movie they do…
