Courtney Love Not Directly Involved With New Kurt Cobain Doco

Written by Marc Zanotti on November 20, 2012

Last week, news that Courtney Love was making a new documentary on her late husband and former Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain caused quite a stir, and not necessarily for the right reasons. Signed on to direct the documentary is filmaker Brett Morgen, whose past work includes the recent Rolling Stones doco Crossfire Hurricane.

Initial reports on the new Cobain doco suggested that Love and Morgen were working on the project together, with Morgen revealing to the NY Post that, “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.”

Morgen’s comments were assumed to mean that Love was directly involved in the making of the documentary. However, Morgen has now released a statement explaining that the Hole singer is a non-factor in the direction of the doco. This news will come as a relief to Love detractors.

“Back in 2007, I had a meeting in L.A. 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,” Morgen told EW.com in a statement.

“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.”
