Courtney Love says plans to turn the story of Nirvana into a musical may become a reality.

Love tells NME in its print edition that the project is "likely to happen."

"After being swarmed by tons of Nirvana fanmail and social media posts pushing for a musical to become a reality, both Frances [ Bean Cobain ],  and I have thought long and hard and agreed that if we can reach up to the highest shelf and select a team of the greatest and most respected writers, producers and directors, then a Broadway musical is very likely to happen," says Love.

She continues: "There would have to be a story, and a great story, one that hasn't been told before. I would devote countless hours with an A-team to create a project that reflects Kurt in the most respectful but honest way possible, so that his story, his music and his legacy can be resurrected on stage for not only the world to see, but more importantly for our daughter to see. I know her father's spirit will be on that stage, and sitting in that theater with her will be the most emotional experience of our lives."

Love's comments are included in an article commemorating the 20th Anniversary of Cobain's death. Members of The Pixies, The Vaselines and Gang of Four were also interviewed for the piece.
