SYDNEY (AFP) - A film is being planned about the life and times of Michael Hutchence, the frontman of Australian rock band INXS who committed suicide 15 years ago, a report said on Friday.

Former Hollywood screenwriter Bobby Galinsky, best-known for his work on the 1990 Kiefer Sutherland thriller Flatliners, told ABC radio casting was expected in the new year.

“It is a big task, I’ve been a writer for 35 years and this is something I’ve wanted to do for over a decade and everything has now come together with it,” he said.

The movie will be called Two Worlds Colliding, based on the book Just a Man – The Real Michael Hutchence penned by the singer’s mother and sister, after Galinsky obtained the rights.
