Courtney Love Working on Kurt Cobain Documentary With Acclaimed Filmmaker
Courtney Love has set the wheels in motion on a documentary about her late husband Kurt Cobain. She has reached out to filmmaker Brett Morgen, the man behind the current Rolling Stones documentary 'Crossfire Hurricane,' to oversee a project based on the life of the late Nirvana frontman
Morgen told the New York Post's Page Six that he's already planning out his Cobain documentary with the blessing of Love. He explained, "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."
The documentarian went on to add, "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."
***Editors Note: Both Courtney Love and director Brett Morgen have confirmed that Love is not working on the documentary project. Love's representative told EW.com that while the singer is not taking part, she is "very happy" that Morgen is pursuing the project. Morgen also confirmed that his quotes in the interview were taken out of context.***
