Kurt Film Gets Courtney Approval

Kurt Cobain could soon be immortalised in an authorised film about his life.

Courtney Love is reportedly in talks with several studios to bring Heavier Than Heaven to the big screen.

"Last Days", the 2005 film by Gus Van Sant is widely thought to have been an unauthorised biopic about Cobain.
