If you're a fan of '80s power ballads, you'll definitely be familiar with Heart's 'Alone'.

The 1987 track is one of the American classic rock band's biggest hits, but they've plenty more in their back catalogue, too - from 'These Dreams' to 'All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You' to their multitude of hits in the 1970s, like 'Barracuda' and 'Crazy On You'.

The band was formed in 1970 in Seattle and is fronted by sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson - and now their story is making its way to the big screen.

Even better - Carrie Brownstein, guitarist of Sleater-Kinney (and actress in 'Portlandia') has been roped in to write and direct it.

The biopic will tell the story of the Wilson sisters' childhood and chart their rise to global fame  - as well as their hugely successful period in the 1980s, the era they scored their biggest hits, but when they simultaneously felt they had given up their artistic freedom.

Speaking recently in an interview, Ann Wilson said she had seen the first draft of the script and revealed that several high-profile actors had expressed interest. “A few actresses have come forward, but no one that’s right,” she said. “Anne Hathaway came forward, but I don’t think she’s exactly right for it.” She  added that she did not have a preference on who would portray her in the film. “I just don’t have any idea. I’m too close to it … I’m just as excited about finding out as you are.”
