Courtney Love planning Kurt Cobain biopic

Los Angeles - Courtney Love is planning a film about Kurt Cobain's life.

The Hole rocker is working on either a musical or a movie about the lives of her and her late Nirvana singer husband, who committed suicide in 1994.

Sam Lutfi, who claims to be her co-manager, said: "Courtney Love and I are currently working on a possible motion picture or Broadway musical based on the Nirvana catalogue, based on her life and Kurt Cobain's. She's an accomplished actress."

Sam made his claims in a Los Angeles court, where he is suing former client Britney Spears' parents for libel and breach of contract.

'It's been her dream'

A source close to 48-year-old Courtney confirmed the movie plans, telling the New York Daily News newspaper: "She's been talking about doing a movie or play about her life with Kurt for a long time. It's been her dream to get her side of the story out."

However, the source also added: "So far, nothing has materialised from Courtney's ideas and she's never made any serious actions to do it."

Courtney's acting career includes appearing in The People Vs Larry Flynt in 1996, 200 Cigarettes in 1999 and Straight to Hell Returns in 2010.

Many films have been made about and inspired by Kurt since his death, including Last Days by Gus van Sant, a lose fictionalisation based on what the rocker's final days may have been like, and documentary Kurt and Courtney by Nick Broomfield, which explored the theory Kurt could actually have been murdered.
