Martin Scorsese is planning to direct a biopic of the seminal punk rock band The Ramones, according to a new report at The Wrap.

The filmmaker will start work on the project after he wraps his next movie, Silence, which stars Andrew Garfield, Ken Watanabe and Liam Neeson.

The band, comprised of singer Joey Ramone, guitarist Johnny Ramone, bassist Dee Dee Ramone and drummer Tommy Ramone, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame in 2002 after a legendary career that included influential songs such as "I Wanna Be Sedated" and "Blitzkrieg Pop."

All four band members have passed away, with Jeff Jampol and Dave Frey managing the band's estate, with plans under way to celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Ramones' first album in the year 2016. There are also plans for a documentary with never-before-seen footage of the band from the 1970s and 1980s, shot by George Seminara, along with a book about their early years that will include photos and memorabilia.

However, Deadline reports that there is no script currently in place, and Martin Scorsese has many other projects on his plate that are further along in the development process, such as The Irishman with Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci and a Frank Sinatra project with Leonardo DiCaprio. He is also slated to direct the pilot episode of HBO's Ashcliffe, which is based on his 2010 thriller Shutter Island.
