Kurt Cobain Movie For WB Network Planned

An original movie about the life of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain is being developed by the WB Network, according to Billboard.com. The WB has bought the rights to Heavier Than Heaven: A Biography Of Kurt Cobain, written by journalist Charles Cross and published in 2001. A screenwriter has already been hired to pen a script for the film, although there’s no word on a director or star.

The film will reportedly follow Cobain’s life from his troubled youth in Washington state to his emergence as an alternative rock icon with Nirvana. Cobain’s struggles with depression and drug abuse will also be explored, along with his turbulent relationship with wife Courtney Love.

A WB executive said that the network may air a public service announcement about depression after the film.

April 5 was the tenth anniversary of Cobain’s suicide. He shot himself to death at his Seattle home, where his body was discovered three days later.
