The turbulent life and career of late Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland will be the subject of an upcoming biopic titled Paper Heart

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the news was announced by Dark Pictures and Orian Williams after they acquired the rights to the 2010 memoir Not Dead & Not for Sale memoir that Weiland wrote with author David Ritz,

The script is being written by Dark Pictures’ co-founder Jennifer Erwin, a self-confessed Stone Temple Pilots fan. Erwin said in a statement: “It’s an honour 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.” 

Producer, Orian Williams also shares Erwin’s long-standing dream of bringing Weiland’s life to the big screen, adding: “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. We’re also thrilled to have access to his unreleased music for the film.”

Scott Weiland died in December 2015 at the age of 48 from an accidental overdose.

David Vigliano, who represents the Weiland estate, told THR: “We’ve been approached many times about Scott’s story and when this team came to us with their vision for a film, it felt right.”
