Courtney Love Filming New Kurt Cobain Documentary

Written by Marc Zanotti on November 16, 2012

Courtney Love is currently working on a documentary about her late husband, and former Nirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain. As reported by NME, Love has recruited filmaker Brett Morgen to help make the new Cobain doco.

Morgen, who directed the new Rolling Stones doco Crossfire Hurricane, told NY Post that he and Love have been talking about the possibility of making a doco about Cobain since 2007.

“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,” Morgen told the NY Post.

The news comes after Love recently shut down rumours of a possible Cobain musical for Broadway. Love said “There will be no musical … Sometimes it’s best just to leave things alone.”

Hopefully the upcoming Cobain documentary won’t prove Love right.
