A new documentary about late INXS frontman Michael Hutchence is set to air on Australia’s Seven TV network later this year, marking the 20th anniversary of the singer’s death. Its executive producer, Mark Llewellyn, promises that the film “will make headlines around the world”.

Titled ‘The Last Rockstar’, the film has been two years in the making and will feature previously unseen photographs and video of Hutchence, as well as what is believed to be the last set of lyrics he wrote on the night of his death. Somewhat more boldly, Llewellyn claims that the film will clear up many of the unanswered questions surrounding Hutchence’s final hours.

In a statement, Llewellyn said: “This is not Michael Hutchence defined by how he died but by how he lived: a brilliant musician, a brilliant man, a loving father, a true rock star. This is not a biopic treading over old territory – this will make headlines around the world. Michael left more questions than answers when he left us, and this documentary will provide those answers and much, much more”.
