kurtcobain Cobain Director Speaks Out On BiopicNew York-based director Oren Moverman is hard at work on a film about the life of [lastfm]Nirvana[/lastfm] singer [lastfm]Kurt Cobain[/lastfm]. According to the director, the biopic will reflect the chaos Cobain experienced throughout his life.

“It’ll be raw and chaotic, which is what Cobain’s life was like. It’ll take you from A to Z. People know the shortcut version – he took a lot of heroin, wrote ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit,’ became the biggest rock star in the world and killed himself,” Moverman tells the Guardian.

“Those known things about him are to me the least interesting,” he adds.

Moverman previously worked on the [lastfm]Bob Dylan[/lastfm] biopic I’m Not There, which received mixed reviews. In comparison with I’m Not There, Moverman says his Cobain flick will be “more linear.”

The new film is partially based on Heavier Than Heaven, a biography of the grunge giant by [lastfm]Charles R Cross.[/lastfm] [lastfm]Courtney Love[/lastfm], Cobain’s notorious widow, is listed as the producer of the film.
