The Hole singer told Clash Magazine that the Scottish comedian would be ideal to helm the movie adaptation of Charles Cross's biography Heavier Than Heaven.
Love said: " I became friends with Eric Fellner, who produced [Alex Cox's] Sid And Nancy, and Fellner is consequently producing Heavier Than Heaven, which is about Kurt and me.
"Who's directing? Well, I watched The Boat That Rocked and I know that it got slated but I really liked it, and Eric is pushing for Richard Curtis."
She added: "But you know who I'm into? The Thick Of It guy? Armando Iannucci. This is a big A-list movie. This is when someone goes and gets an Oscar for it."
Love recently confirmed that she would be playing a number of gigs under the Hole banner, despite being the sole remaining founding member.
