    Oren Moverman, an Oscar-nominated writer-director of the Woody Harrelson/Ben Foster Iraq War-themed film The Messenger has struck the Hollywood again. He is in talk to write and direct Universal's untitled Kurt Cobain biopic.

    Wait! Who doesn't know Kurt Cobain? The front-man behind the most successful grunge rock in the world ever, Nirvana was found dead in his home at Lake Washington in April 1994. Many believed that Cobain had committed suicide by shotgun while some put forward some conspiracy theories that he was murdered. No matter what the possibilities are, the legend has died. He left behind a widow, Courtney Love, a daughter, Frances Bean and his bandmates, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl, who have moved on to form Foo Fighters. His musical impacts and influences remain till this day.

    Since his death, there have been no official Cobain movies although Gus van Sant's attempt with Last Days (starring Michael Pitt) proved a little bit to be excited for. Universal and Working Title has been in various attempts to make Cobain movie going with a possible attempt to adapt Charles R Cross' Heavier Than Heaven: A Biography Of Kurt Cobain.

    Moverman is still on negotiation with David Benioff's script. Eric Fellner, Tim Bevan and Graham Larson will produce while Courtney Love will executive produce.
