Courtney Love to be executive producer

Kurt Cobain’s life is set to be made into a film, with Courtney Love acting as the executive producer.

Universal Pictures have hired scriptwriter David Benioff, who worked on ‘Troy’, to write the film, set to be based on journalist Charles Cross’ biography of the Nirvana frontman, ‘Heavier Than Heaven’.

Courtney Love will be the executive producer alongside her lawyer Howard Weitzman – there is some speculation she may appear in the film.
