Messenger Helmer Takes Over Cobain Biopic

“The Messenger” director Oren Moverman will re-write the untitled Kurt Cobain project at Universal Pictures reports Risky Biz Blog.

David Benioff penned the script back in 2007 based heavily on Charles R. Cross’ 2001 biography “Heavier Than Heaven” about the life, music and 1994 suicide of the Nirvana singer-songwriter.

The project was originally setup at Working Title and Reveille. Courtney Love will serve as executive producer.
