Artist News

Kurt Cobain

Director Brett Morgen, who is responsible for new Rolling Stones documentary ‘Crossfire Hurricane’, has revealed that he is working on a film about Kurt Cobain with the Nirvana frontman’s widow Courtney Love. In fact, reports the New York Post, they’ve been working on it since 2007.

Morgen said: “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”.

Earlier this year it was revealed that Cobain and Love’s daughter Frances Cobain actually control’s her father’s image rights, Love having given them up temporarily in return for a loan from Frances’ trust fund. If or how this affects any film project isn’t clear.
