Kurt Cobain biopic will go into production next year

COURTNEY Love says a new biopic of her late husband Kurt Cobain will go into production next year.

The Hole frontwoman has claimed that she, her and Kurt's daughter Frances Bean Cobain and Nirvana's Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic will be involved in casting and production.

She told the Philippine Daily Inquirer: "CAA (Creative Artists Agency) directly sent me actors' (demo) reels. That was really tough because these boys are so pretty, so cute. I won't name names because I don't want to jinx it for anyone but these are 25-year-olds who are blond, gorgeous and the new Brad Pitts.

"There's a ton of those. Some are really good actors, not just pretty faces. I don't want to be the person who makes that decision. Let's leave that to the agents; I have great agents now. But I will have a say in it."

Courtney previously claimed she can't go out in Hollywood without someone asking her to take part in a biopic of the late Nirvana singer, who committed suicide aged 27 on April 5, 1994.

She said: "Honey, I can't go out in Hollywood at night without somebody grabbing me and saying 'I want to be a part of this', and we're talking to the biggest producers in town."
