Cinematical reported yesterday that screenwriter David Benioff is going to pen up a story about everyone’s favorite shotgun victim, Kurt Cobain. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Nirvana when he was alive and they were still making music. Now, every time I hear them on the radio, I change the channel. I guess you could say I am a bit Nirvana’d out.
With that said though, Benioff has a penned one of Spike Lee’s best films, The 25th Hour. It was one of the first real Hollywood films to focus on a group of characters living in post-9/11 New York City. Some of the clean up footage during the film is truly harrowing.
But then Benioff wrote that Wolfgang Peterson monstrosity called Troy. Man, did that movie hurt my anus. What will this Kurt Cobain adventure bring us? Even better, who cares anymore? Guy wrote sangs, made money, fucked Courtney Love, did heroin, shot himself. Not too much of a character to tackle.
