Argentinean journalist/author Adriana Rubio has been contacted by writer/director Eric Moyer from Philadelphia about turning her biography of late Alice In Chains singer Layne Staley into a movie.
Eric Moyer is said to be in the process of writing the first draft of the script based on Rubio’s book, Layne Staley: Get Born Again.
"I am determined to make this film about Layne Staley,” said Moyer, “not only to celebrate his life and talent, but to warn others through his compelling story that heroin will kill you...no matter who you are. "
According to Rolling Stone , “Rubio began the book with the Staley family's blessings, but the singer's mom later said it ‘lacked concern for basic human dignity’ and withdrew support.
Staley died of a heroin overdose in April 2002.
Anyone besides me geting a little sick of these "rock stars that died of heroin overdose" movies?
