Kurt Bio?

Movies based on dead people can be a touchy subject, especially when the death was as tragic and controversial as Kurt Cobains. Writer/Director of "The Messenger" Oren Moverman is currently in talks with Universal to produce a Kurt Cobain biopic.
         I happen to be a huge fan of Kurt's, with that being said I am not sure how i feel about this. Having actually read Kurts lyrics and some of his writing I am not sure if he would approve, his biggest fear was selling out and becoming too "commercial". I am not saying this director is just looking for a cash grab(though that is possible), I just personally don't feel this movie has to be made at all. Even with that being said, my curiosity would eventually drive me into the theatre. I just hope the director keeps in mind that Kurt still has family and friends that are tired of the grim reminder. If your gonna do it, do it right.
