Winter logs on to ‘Napster’ movie

Screenwriter Alex Winter (and star of “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure”) has been hired to pen “Napster: The Shawn Fanning Bio Project,” a project originally developed as a TV movie but since expanded into a feature film. In 1999 Fanning created Napster (his own nickname) in his dorm room at Northeastern U. in Boston as a way for collegians to swap music files on the Internet. He dropped out of school to launch Napster as an online business, prompting lawsuits from the Recording Industry Association of America, Dr. Dre and Metallica.
