Kurt Cobain Biopic to Be Helmed by I'm Not There's Oren Moverman?
Published Feb 18, 2010Oren Moverman's transition from acclaimed screenwriter to acclaimed director was pretty seamless: his 2009 directorial debut The Messenger ended up with two Academy Award nominations (including one for best original screenplay) and a series of other awards and nominations.
Now, after having written the screenplay for the 2007 Bob Dylan biopic I'm Not There, Moverman is set to tackle the story of another famous rock star: Kurt Cobain.
According to Deadline [via The Daily Swarm], David Benioff's script for the long-planned Kurt Cobain biopic, which is under the working title All Apologies, has been handed to Moverman by Universal Studios to "polish and direct."
The film will chronicle the last two days of Cobain's life, up until his suicide.
Excited? We are.
