About A Boy

Something which occurred to me on the way to work by an obscure chain of associations... can anyone think of a plausible reason why the film of About A Boy substituted the Nirvana plot with a rather lame and inferior one? The book seemed to me to be obviously written with 1.99 eyes on a film adaption with Hugh Grant.
If there was a problem with rights, couldn't they have had Bert Bobain, lead singer of Oblivion or somesuch? You wouldn't need that many lines of exposition to get this across.
