Teenagers looking to get KISS-ed

By JIM SLOTEK Toronto Sun

T.O. GETS KISSED: They may still rock 'n' roll all night and party every day, but the guys from KISS are going to have to fit in some film time when they hit Toronto next week. The band -- which put the makeup back on and hit the road last year for a series of sold-out stadium dates -- was signed by New Line Cinema recently for their big screen movie debut. The film, Detroit Rock City, is skedded to shoot here through the first week of December. KISS originals Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss co-star alongside some kid actors in a "hilarious coming-of-age story about four teenagers who embark on a wild adventure to attend a KISS concert. Driven by their unwavering passion to experience their favourite legendary rock group live, the teens will stop at nothing to scam their way into the sold-out show." Among the teen schemers: Christine Sixteen, played by Natasha Lyonne (who played the mall-princess with the suddenly-developed breasts in Slums Of Beverly Hills). Adam Rifkin (Small Soldiers) directs.
