Michael Hutchence Resurrected in "Slide Away"



A biopic on Michael Hutchence is being developed as a big screen project entitled "Slide Away."

Gaining momentum following last year's reality TV show of "Rock Star: INXS", a biopic about the late INXS frontman Michael Hutchence is being prepared to be brought up to the big screen. Entitled "Slide Away", the picture will be entrusted in the hands of music video director Nick Egan to helm with Chester Hastings and Dean McCreary to pen the scripts.

Derives from a posthumous duet that paired Hutchence with Bono of U2, the project actually has been in development for some time, but turned out to be a complicated yearlong affair when it reportedly faced a rage from the singer's father, Kelland Hutchence.

A native of Australia, Hutchence rose to international recognition together with INXS during the '80s when the band scored big success through their sixth studio album, "Kick" in 1987. He was found hanged in a Sydney hotel room at age 37 in November 1997, much to his enormous fans' shock.
