Courtney Love has acquired the rights to Charles Cross’ celebrated biography on her late husband Kurt Cobain, Heavier Than Heaven, and plans to turn it into a movie.
Love is now reportedly in talks with a number of top Hollywood studios with a view to immortalizing the Nirvana front man’s life on the big screen.
In a posting on her fansite, MoonwashedRose.com, Love revealed the film project is “in an embryonic stage,” adding, “(There’s) no script and no director attached.”
The project will be the first official film about the tragic rocker, who committed suicide in 1995, although moviemaker Gus Van Sant cast actor Michael Pitt as a Cobain look-alike in 2005 movie Last Days, which was widely believed to be the director’s unauthorized account of the Nirvana star’s life.
