A biopic on the late INXS frontman Michael Hutchence is currently in the works, 702 ABC Sydney reports. Writer Bobby Galinksy is penning the screenplay for the flim, titled Two Worlds Colliding, after lyrics from the INXS song “Never Tear Us Apart.” Galinsky, who has eyed the project for over a decade, will base the screenplay 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 Galinsky. Instead, Galinsky wants to focus on certain key questions and themes: “Who was Michael Hutchence? What drove him? What were his demons? What were his loves?” he said. Casting will begin next year.

Michael Hutchence died on November 22nd, 1997 at age 37. INXS eventually recruited a new singer through a reality television competition, but the band called it quits earlier this month.
