Scott Weiland’s life is getting the big-screen treatment.
Dark Pictures and Orian Williams just announced they acquired the book rights to the late Stone Temple Pilots singer’s “Not Dead & Not for Sale” memoir and that Jennifer Erwin will be writing it into a biopic.
Erwin said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter: “It’s an honor to have the trust to tell Scott’s story and the ability to portray the lesser known sides of him – the loving and tender man he was, the high school athlete he was, the melancholy soul he was and the legendary frontman that he will always be.”
Added producer Williams, “We want to make the most authentic film possible about this remarkable artist. Beyond Scott’s page-turning memoir, connecting with those closest to Scott is important to get the details right.”
The film will be titled “Paper Heart” but there is no info on when fans should be expecting to see it just yet.
