Courtney Love no longer involved in Cobain film

Artist News

Kurt Cobain

So, Brett Morgen is indeed working on a Kurt Cobain film, but not in partnership with Courtney Love it seems, even though the project was her idea. Following recent reports on Morgen’s Cobain project, and Love’s possibly involvement, the director has clarified the situation to Entertainment Weekly, saying that while Love originally contacted him about making the film, he is now working directly with Cobain’s estate on the project.

Said Morgen: “Back in 2007, I had a meeting in LA with Courtney Love to discuss my possible involvement in a Kurt Cobain documentary. She had seen my film, ‘The Kid Stays In The Picture’, and thought that I had the right vision and passion to bring Kurt’s story to life. Since that time, I have been speaking exclusively with Kurt Cobain’s estate, who have given me their full cooperation in order to make the film. Courtney isn’t currently involved with the project in any capacity. The estate and I will be releasing more information about our plans in the coming weeks. Production on the film will begin in the coming months and we are aiming for a 2014 release”.
