Heavier than Heaven (A Kurt Cobain Biopic)

TOP: L-R, Kurt Cobain; Ryan Gosling BOTTOM: L-R, Courtney Love; Scarlett Johansson


Shame on me! I'm starting to hate myself a little bit. How could I be so damn late in finding out that there's a movie coming out based on Kurt Cobain's biography. What kind of a hardcore fan am I?

Anyway, I know I can forgive myself for that in time. So according to the website where I found the information.

* The movie is based on Charles Cross's biography of Cobain, "Heavier than Heaven", which would likewise be the title of the movie.
* Courtney Love, executive producer, has said she wants actor Ryan Gosling to play her late husband Kurt Cobain in a film. (Well for those who don't know her she's the widow of Kurt Cobain and the mother of their child Frances Bean Cobain)
* Courtney who seems to be a fan of Scarlett Johansson wants that she portray her.

Well, I just hope Courtney, as executive producer won't make a trash out of this movie. But I SERIOUSLY DOUBT that the hardcore fans and loyalists would really appreciate the film, if up to now, the truth about Kurt Cobain's death has been a mystery for some and it's a fact that Love is being said to be involved in Kurt's death.

Now, based on Rollingstones Magazine pre-production has finally kicked-off, and the initial casts of the film aside from Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Gosling are:

Justin Long as Krist Noveselic, Nirvana's bassist
Topher Grace
as Dave Grohl
, Nirvana's drummer
Cate Blanchett
as Eric Erlandson
, served as Singer, guitarist, and songwriter for Nirvana Jake Gyllenhaal as Axl Rose of the Guns 'N Roses
Jack Black
as King Buzzo, (Buzz Osbourne)

Emile Hirsch
as Eddie Vedder, lead singer of Pearl Jam

Toni Collette
as Kim Gordon
, of Sonic Youth
Ron Jeremy
as Tad Doyle
, of the band TAD

L-R: Dave Grohl, Kurt Cobain and Krist Noveselic

Now, this isn't the first film about Kurt Cobain, if I am not mistaken i posted a review on some of them. Two of his films which was released internationally are "Last Days" in 2005, which is about a theory on how Kurt Cobain spent his last days, and "About a Son" in 2006 which basically tells a story of his childhood until he reached stardom.

I can't wait to see this new film!, and if ever I won't make it to the cinemas in time for it's showing, I promise you guys I'll commit suicide! Kiddin'! haha!!!

Wow, I haven't heard of this. But, I think the lead actors are perfect for this and if Courtney's the producer, hope she better make sure the movie is sane and sober of course. :)
