‘Secret’ direction: West

Pic, to be directed by Grossman will also star Philips

Shane West will star as Darby Crash, leader of punk band the Germs, in the biopic “What We Do Is Secret.” Pic is slated to start shooting early next year.

Bijou Philips will also star in the film, written and to be directed by Rodger Grossman. Pic chronicles the short, violent and tragic life of Crash, whose Los Angeles band was credited as one of the leaders in the Stateside punk movement of the late 1970s.

Stephen Nemeth will produce the Rhino Films and Untitled Entertainment production.

“What We Do Is Secret” will serve as Grossman’s feature writing and directing bow.

Philips starred in “Bully” and will be seen in upcoming pic “The Door in the Floor” and in “Havoc.”
