Courtney Love apparently believes the world will spontaneously combust if she isn’t constantly feuding with Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and the millions of Nirvana fans who question her ability to handle Nirvana’s postmortem business. Does Love really
know what’s best for Kurt Cobain’s legacy? We’re not even sure if she knows what’s best for her own
legacy, let alone that of her late great husband. But whatever. Let Courtney love control the public’s access to one of the biggest figures in the history of recorded music. If it’s out of Dave Grohl’s hands, then it’s definitely out of ours.
So anyway, here’s why we bring all of this up: Access Hollywood reports
that Love has acquired the rights to Heavier than Heaven
, a Cobain biography written by Charles Cross. Several studios have been talking to Love about a film adaptation of Cross’ book, although the project currently lacks a script, a director, and actors.
But wait, didn’t Gus Van Sant already do this in 2005? And didn’t he hire a former Dawson’s Creek
heartthrob to portray the Cobain figure? We welcome the opportunity for a better movie to be made about such a seminal musician, but we’re boycotting the thing if James Van Der Beek shows up.
