Love Wants McGregor For Cobain

By Garth Franklin Thursday January 18th 2007 12:37AM

"Nirvana" frontman Kurt Cobain's widow Courtney Love wants Ewan McGregor - but not how you think.

Earlier this week she acquired the rights to Charles Cross' "Heavier than Heaven", his celebrated biography on her late husband.

Now British tabloid The Daily Express reports that McGregor - who has already played a punk star in glam rock movie "Velvet Goldmine" - is believed to be Love's number one choice to play the troubled singer.

The project will be the first official film about the tragic rocker who committed suicide in 1995.
