LATEST: Tragic Inxs star Michael Hutchence is to return from the grave in a new biopic produced by Morgan Freeman.
The film, tentatively titled Slide Away - the name of the duet the singer performed with U2's Bono, will feature Hutchence's ghost recalling his wild life to daughter Tigerlily.
Longtime INXS videomaker Michael Egan will direct the film, while bosses at Freeman's Revelations Productions company are now on the search for an actor to play Hutchence's ghost. Initial reports suggest Johnny Depp is the frontrunner for the part.
But it's unlikely Hutchence's INXS bandmates will play any part in the film, even though members of the late rocker's family have given producers their blessing.
The group's publicist, Chrissy Camp, says, "The band has never been involved in any of these films and I really don't think this one will be any different."
Hutchence accidentally hanged himself while performing a sex act in a Sydney, Australia hotel in November, 1997.
