The late INXS rocker Michael Hutchence was a big enough man to have two filmed biographies about his wild life and tragic death, but is there room for three?
Following announcements that two feature films are in development about Hutchence's life, a third project has now emerged.
The Seven Network - the same network which controversially televised Hutchence's funeral in 1997 - is said to be working on a four-hour miniseries.

The project has the working title Never Tear Us Apart: The INXS Story.
And because the development and production cycle in television is much faster than that of film, the mini-series looks likely to beat both feature films to market.
The project is to be produced for Seven by Shine Australia, according to a report published by the US film and television industry news website Deadline.
Neither Seven nor Shine have officially announced it, but Deadline reports filming will take place in Melbourne in mid-2013.
Casting is also under way for actors to play Hutchence, the Farriss brothers – Jon, Tim and Andrew – Kirk Pengilly, Garry Beers and the band's manager, Chris Murphy, in the project.
The two films based on Hutchence's life were announced last month.
The first is titled Michael, and will be produced by Sue Murray and written and directed by Richard Lowenstein, who directed Hutchence in the 1987 film Dogs in Space.
Lowenstein also directed many INXS music videos and the 2001 feature film He Died With A Felafel In His Hand.
The agency Screen Australia is partly funding Michael.
The second film, Two Worlds Colliding, will be produced by Trevor Ray Field and Suzy Markovski and is based on the book Just A Man: The Real Michael Hutchence by the late singer's sister Tina Hutchence and mother, Patricia Glassop.
Private investors are funding the film.
It is understood Michael is at a later stage of development than Two Worlds Colliding.
INXS, with Hutchence, recorded 10 studio albums between –1980 and 1997.
Hutchence was found dead in a Sydney hotel room on November 22, 1997.
In 2005 the surviving members of the band cast a new lead singer on the reality television series Rock Star: INXS.
The winner of that series, the Canadian singer J.D. Fortune, recorded lead vocals on the band's 11th studio album, Switch.
The Noiseworks frontman Jon Stevens and the Northern Irish singer-songwriter Ciaran Gribbin have also stood in for Hutchence as lead vocalists with the band.
INXS officially confirmed their retirement last month.
