A new film about Nico has been greenlit. The biopic titled Nico, 1988, follows the former Velvet Underground member on her 1987 solo tour where she dabbled in heroin and other hard drugs. Italian director Susanna Nicchiarelli is set to make the film and spoke at the Rome Film Festival saying: "Most people think, as Andy Warhol once said, that after her experience with Velvet Underground and the Factory – and after having had sex with most of the rock stars of those years – Nico simply 'became a fat junkie' and disappeared. But is this how her life really went." Danish actress Trine Dyrholm is set to play the musician and star. The film is slated to come out next year.
