In 1994, 27 year old rock-idol Kurt Cobain commited a suicide, after amazing success as front man to Nirvana in the early 90s.
Courtney Love married Cobain in February of 1992, a little over two years before his death.
Now more than a decade later Courtney Love has acquired the rights to a Kurt Cobain biopic called "Heavier than Life" written by Charles Cross.
According to Virgin Movie News, Ewan McGregor is being rumored to star in the film a Cobain.
Every musician bio-pic seems the same, whether it's Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, or now Kurt Cobain. There's a young person's quick success, emptiness, and drug abuse. Yet this depressing formula made for two successful movies with Ray and Walk The Line, so why not change music genres and tell the same story with a widely popular punk rockers sad story.
While I'm sure Ewan McGregor would do an excellent job, I could easily see the role going to someone else, as this is still a very early rumor.
