‘Detroit’ reunion KISS-off

Furlong no-shows but cast rocks viewing

HOLLYWOOD — They didn’t exactly rock and roll all night, but KISS fans and aspiring screenwriters turned out Tuesday night for a screening of the 1999 film “Detroit Rock City” that reunited cast and crew at the ArcLight.

Notably absent from the event, part of Scriptwriters Network’s “Story to Glory” series, was guest of honor Edward Furlong. But several other cast members showed up, including Lin Shaye and Shannon Tweed, along with scripter Carl Dupre and helmer Adam Rifkin. Tweed’s longtime companion Gene Simmons couldn’t make it and KISS tribute band Hotter Than Hell made a less-than-stellar showing, with only half its members.

Those present, however, told the inspiring tale of how pic quickly came together, getting greenlit just four weeks after its submission at New Line. “It was like KISS-met,” quipped Dupre.
