Access Hollywood has learned late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain may finally be immortalized on screen with the permission of his widow, rocker Courtney Love. Love has acquired the rights to “Heavier Than Heaven,” author Charles Cross' biography on the late grunge singer. According to our source, several studios are in discussions with Love to bring the book to the big screen.

The rocker also confirmed the project is “in an embryonic stage,” with a post on a Courtney Love fansite MoonwashedRose.com. '[It] has no script and no director attached, let alone stars,' she added. If deals are made and reached, this will be the first authorized look at the life of Kurt Cobain, his band Nirvana and his relationship with his wife. Love, who is currently preparing her second solo album tentatively titled “How Dirty Girls Get Clean” added in her post that if the movie is made, “it will of course be [an] A list and high end film.”

Do you think it`s right for Courtney Love to allow a movie to be made about Kurt Cobain`s life?

Why wouldn't it be? Movies about people that have passed away are made all the time.

As long as it's a fair portrayal I don't see anything wrong with it.

It wouldn't be because of Kurt's fans - many hate Courtney and feel she's been using Kurt's death (and life) to get money. And some still think she killed him, so anything that she touches about him would be tainted.

yeah exactly what i was going to say.

i could see if it was guaranteed that she didnt have anything to do with the movie at all and wouldnt get any payoff from it, then yeah thatd be fine.

i agree with you, but there really is no way for us to know if its a fair portrayal or not, and thats probably why people would be against the film

Whether she killed him or not, and whether anyone agrees or disagrees about her involvement in a movie, it'll get made.

Too many money grubbers are willing to do so knowing fans either protesting or supporting is going to allow for a lot of free publicity and notoriety, which will up ticket sales and fatten certain walllets.

I don't see why not.

That part is true, I'll probably see it even if she does make it and makes money off it. My husband is the biggest Kurt Cobain fan ever, in college he looked exactly like him. If you look at pictures of Kurt as a kid and pictures of my husband at a kid you'd have a hard time telling them apart. They were the same height too. I think he should play him in this movie - the article says nobody has been cast yet!

Plus I just bought her book Dirty Blonde so I give her money anyway. I've always been a Hole fan, even if I don't like her personally too much.

I guess you can't stop the American people from making movies out of every f-cking thing.

Make the damn movie. I won't watch it. Cobain fans are among the most obsessive people I've ever meet. Love killed him; he was a God, a god I tell ya! It's annoying really.

Ofcourse she should allow it considering she was his wife and knew him well.

Am I the only person who thinks that Love played a part in Princess Diana? I mean she got away with Kurt, so why not Di?... jejeje I'm jokin, that woman is a saint, Courtney's brilliant.
