Heavier Than Heaven - book about Kurt CobainFollowing this year’s brilliant biopic of the much troubled Ian Curtis, Control, there is alot of speculation in Hollywood that a new film about the life and times of Nirvana’s frontman Kurt Cobain is to star James McAvoy, the much accliamed Scottish actor who starred in the Oscar winning The Last King Of Scotland.

Rumours are spreading across the web that the biopic is to be based on the book Heavier than Heaven, a biography of Kurt Cobain written by Charles Cross.

The book is based on hundreds of interviews Kurt Cobain’s unpublished diaries, lyrics, and family photos. Heavier Than Heaven traces Cobain’s life from his early days living in a trailer in Washington, to his rise to adoration and fame, where success, it appears, ultimately killed him.

Cross’s own website states the book drawson “… medical and police reports, and Cobain’s own private writings, Cross also reveals the truth about Cobain’s health struggles, his depression, and his tragic final days.”
