Ever thought you’d see the day where Kurt Cobain’s life story would hit a screen near you? According to Courtney Love, that is in fact going to happen and the biopic on the late Nirvana frontman is slated to go into production next year.
In a recent interview with Philippine Daily Inquirer, Love revealed that she will be overseeing the film alongside her daughter with Cobain, Frances Bean and Cobain’s former Nirvana band mates, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic.
Though the role of Cobain has not been cast yet, Love revealed that there are many candidtes for the iconic singer’s role. “I won’t name names because I don’t want to jinx it for anyone, but these are 25-year-olds who are blonde, gorgeous and the new Brad Pitts…some are really good actors, not just pretty face.”
However, Love did say that she would leave the decision to the casting directors whose job is to pick the best candidate.
“I don’t want t be the person who makes that decision. Let’s leave that to the agents; I have great agents now. But, I will have a say in it.”
As previously reported, Quantum of Solace director, Marc Forster and The Messenger’s Oren Moverman have been attached to the film. Whether or not that still holds true, there’s no definite answer.
But, apparently there’s a lot of Cobain to go around for Love; the Hole frontwoman has discussed a Cobain-inspired musical as well as a documentary, so just in case one doesn’t work out, there are many other ways to tell the story of Cobain.
