9780743406567.jpgRock star Craig Finn and CBS’ Late Show With David Letterman writer Tom Ruprecht will adapt rock & roll writer Chuck Klosterman‘s memoir for the big screen.

Entitled “Fargo Rock City,” the memoir recounts the writer’s adventures as a heavy metal fan in a tiny North Dakota town. The singer and the television writer bought the film rights to the book, and Klosterman will help them produce the feature.

Finn is the literary-minded lead singer of The Hold Steady, and reminisced about his teenage years in The Hollywood Reporter: “[A]t that age that you have drivers licenses and a certain amount of independence, but you’re still young enough that you can totally make terrible decisions … And you’re still young enough that you can have a two-hour argument over whether Motley Crue would beat Guns ‘N Roses in a fight.” (Via Speakeasy)
