Courtney Love says she hopes filming will start on a mooted Kurt Cobain biopic within the next year.

As reported, a film of the late Nirvana frontman's life is set to go into production. Love set the timescale in a new interview with Inquirer Entertainment, in which she also said she won't be deciding who plays her late husband.

"The biopic should start within the next year or so," said Love. "I won’t name names because I don’t want to jinx it for anyone but these are 25-year-olds who are blonde, 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."

However, Love will be involved in the film, alongside Cobain's former Nirvana bandmates. "I do have a say in it. So do Frances, and Krist (Novoselic) and Dave (Grohl), for that matter, if it touches on Nirvana — and it will. I am leading the charge because it’s time to do this."

Love previously revealed to NME that she has ambitious plans for her late husband's legacy, including a documentary and stage play. Love stated that it has been fans' reactions to the possibility of a stage production involving Cobain's story which has made it now "very likely" to happen.
