Michael Hutchence biopic in works 15 years after INXS frontman's death



hutchence.jpgINXS's Michael Hutchence died Nov. 22, 1997. And now 15 years later, Hollywood feels about ready to begin a biopic on the legendary frontman. According to Rolling Stone and 702 ABC Sydney, the movie will be called Two Worlds Colliding and will based on the book Just a Man – The Real Michael Hutchence, written by the singer's mother and sister.

"It's from the family's side as Michael being a son, a brother, a friend. It's not a sex, drugs and rock & roll tabloid situation," said Bobby Galinsky, who's writing the screenplay. Casting is set to begin next year, allowing Hollywood executives enough time to talk Galinsky into adding a little sex, drugs and rock & roll.

By the way, if you missed it, Rolling Stone did an excellent flashback to Hutchence on what would have been the singer's 50th birthday. Click here to see it.
