Singer Courtney Love has big plans to create a Kurt Cobain biopic, documentary and musical if she and her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, can make it happen.
"After being swarmed by tons of Nirvana fan mail and social-media posts pushing for a musical to become a reality, both Frances and I have thought long and hard and agreed that if we can reach up to the highest shelf and select a team of the greatest and most respected writers, producers and directors, then a Broadway musical is very likely to happen," Love told NME, notes Rolling Stone.
Love found confidence in the fan’s reactions as their hope has made it very likely, noted NME. the magazine will release a tribute issue to the late Nirvana frontman tomorrow.
In order for these ideas to come to life, Love wants it done in a unique and different matter.
"There would have to be a story, and a great story, one that hasn't been told before," Love told NME. "I would devote countless hours with an A-team to create a project that reflects Kurt in the most respectful but honest way possible, so that his story, his music and his legacy can be resurrected on stage for not only the world to see, but more importantly for our daughter to see. I know her father's spirit will be on that stage, and sitting in that theater with her will be the most emotional experience of our lives."
The 20th anniversary of Cobain’s death is coming up on April 8, which explains his resurgence in the media. Cobain’s hometown in Aberdeen, Was. declared Kurt Cobain Day on his birthday, Feb. 20, and a Cobain look-alike was depicted in a Dutch beer ad. There will even be a Kurt Cobain comic book released tomorrow.
Nirvana will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next week, which has been stirring up some controversy between Love and Nirvana drummer, Dave Grohl.
