After much speculation, the film adaptation of Charles Cross' Kurt Cobain biography, Heavier than Heaven, is set to move forward. According to Variety.com, Universal Pictures has acquired the film's rights and tapped writer David Benioff to tackle the screenplay.
2007 has seen a flurry of projects related to the singer, including the release of the Nirvana MTV Unplugged DVD, and the AJ Schnack-directed documentary, About A Son. Heavier than Heaven is the only film to have the blessing of Cobain's widow, Courtney Love. As long as she doesn't have to sit through any screenings with Dave Grohl, it should stay that way.
