Love to direct Bay City Rollers film
With Melissa Auf Der
Maur now officially out of Hole, Courtney Love is pushing ahead with a full
slate of projects, including directing her first film, collaborating with
risque rapper Lil' Kim and launching a "lifestyle portal" website.
Love is planning to direct a film recounting the rise and fall of '70s
teenybop icons the Bay City Rollers, according to Rolling Stone. Love first
came into contact with writer Caroline Sullivan's book "Bye Bye Baby" when
the London Observer asked the Hole singer to review the book. Now, Love's
production company has optioned the rights to the story and hopes to film
the Rollers' warts-and-all account of their glorious rise and seedy slide
Love's work in front of the camera, meanwhile, will soon be seen in
two biopics: the Andy Kaufman story "Man On The Moon" and "Beat," which tells
the tale of writer William S. Burroughs and his wife Joan.
