So apparently a movie on Nico is in the works;
(from http://www.bbc.co.uk/films/2004/05/27/high_noon_may_27_2004_news_article.shtml)
"Young Adam director David Mackenzie has signed up for Nico, the biopic of the model-singer-actress who made the Andy Warhol scene in the 60s. Based on the book Nico: The End by James Young, the film will follow Nico from her appearance in Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita to her singing stint with Warhol's Velvet Underground, and the heroin addiction that almost ruined her life. Actually her ultimate undoing was a bicycle accident in Ibiza in 1988. That's right, a bicycle accident.
It's soooh not rock'n'roll, but apparently is fitting for a script described as "dark and funny". Writing team David and Janet Peoples, who penned 12 Monkeys, have adapted the book and are currently working on a rewrite with Mackenzie."

i'm not sure whether to be happy, or upset to be honest..

I know what you mean. In one way, I hope that the Nico biopic will bring more attention to her, but on the other hand most biopics suck!

Maybe I'm the only optimist here, but I like the idea. Sure it might suck, but hey, it might not, and either way it at least shows that more people are becoming intrigued by her life story (as I am).

Now as for the bicycle accident part, wtf is that? I heard she died from a brain hemridge.

They think she had the brain hemorrhage first, then fell off her bike, although there's no way to be sure.

Here's an interview with James Young from March of this year. He doesn't mention the movie.
