The soap opera continues. At the beginning of the month, Courtney Love categorically denied that there were plans to turn Kurt Cobain ’s life story into a Broadway musical, as her representative, Sam Lufti, had suggested a few weeks ago during a court appearance. Courtney denied the idea that had caused the biggest uproar and drawn the fiercest criticism from the ranks of Nirvana fans: the possibility of seeing their idol caricatured on Broadway. However, Cobain’s former wife said nothing about the other possibility suggested by Lufti. In the manager’s words, they were “currently working on a possible motion picture or Broadway musical based on her life and Kurt Cobain’s”. Well, it seems that the former, the film about Cobain, is indeed in the works.
It will be a documentary, and at the head of the project is Brett Morgan, director of “Crossfire Hurricane”, a documentary about The Rolling Stones that premiered recently, coinciding with the band’s 50th anniversary. Morgan said to the New York Post that the idea came from Courtney five years ago, and they have been discussing the project ever since. "Courtney is the one that brought me into this. We've been trying to find the right time to put this film together and the time is now... Kurt was not only an amazing songwriter and musician, he was an incredible artist and filmmaker. So we are going to do the movie sort of like a third-person autobiography — [as] if Kurt was around and making a film about his life."
The film might be out in 2014, although there is no specific information about its release at present.
