According to Variety, after announcing their rock 'n' roll reunion late last year, hair metal maestros Motley Crue will appear as claymation characters in the feature Disaster! The Movie for L.A.-based Dream Entertainment.

Now touring to rep their "Red White & Crue" retrospective CD set, the rockers are playing footage from "Disaster" during intermissions at their live shows.

The animated parody of such actioners as Armageddon, Twister and Apollo 13 is being helmed by Roy Wood from a script by Paul Benson and Matt Sullivan.

The headbangers in Crue also have in current development a bigscreen adaptation of their biography "The Dirt," at MTV Films.
