Scott Weiland Gets Spotlight in New Film
A new movie is in the works centering on the late Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots.
The film– called Paper Heart— is based on Weiland’s memoir called Not Dead & Not for Sale.
Dark Pictures and Orian Williams have acquired the book rights to the memoir, and Jennifer Erwin, a diehard Stone Temple Pilots fan and co-founder of Dark Pictures, will write the film’s script.
“It’s an honor to have the trust to tell Scott’s story and the ability to portray the lesser known sides of him,” says Dark Pictures co-founder Jennifer Erwin. “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.”
Weiland died in 2015 at the age of 48.
