Courtney Love eyeing up Brad Pitt-types to play Kurt Cobain in biopic
The selection process is under way to select someone to play the late Nirvana frontman.
Courtney Love says auditions to find someone to play her late husband Kurt Cobain are under way, and that the timing is right 20 years after his suicide in Seattle.
"[It] was really tough because these boys are so pretty, so cute," she told the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
"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 ... Some are really good actors, not just pretty faces."
Love says that she doesn't want to make the final decision on the choice of actor but that she will be consulted on the decision.
"I do have a say in it. So do (her and Kurt's daughter) 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."
No director has yet been chosen for the film but Marc Forster (Monster's Ball, Finding Neverland) is thought to be a leading candidate.
