Courtney Love has scored herself a new role alongside Joey King in the forthcoming drama The Possibility of Fireflies. The film is set in Maryland in 1989 and focuses on the coming-of-age story of Ellie Roma, as she breaks out of her suburban circumstances to follow her dream of being a writer. Roma discovers rock music and it changes the direction of her life. Love, of course, plays her self-destructive mother.

The Possibility Of Butterflies is based on Dominique Paul's 2006 novel and will be directed by Deborah Chow. It is currently in pre-production and is slated for release sometime next year.
