Kurt Cobain Is Getting a Biopic

Oren Moverman, the writer and director of The Messenger, is in talks to take on Universal’s untitled Kurt Cobain movie. Moverman will rework an original script written by David Benioff and based partially on first-hand research, as well as Charles R. Cross's 2001 Cobain biography, Heavier Than Heaven. Since Universal already owns Cobain and Courtney Love’s life rights, there’s only one question left: Will this be as good as Notorious? [HR]
