A UK tabloid reports that not only will Robert Pattinson be playing Kurt Cobain in a Hollywood biopic, but that Scarlett Johansson is high on the list to play Courtney Love.
According to the report, playing the Nirvana singer, who shot himself in 1994, would be R-Pattz’s perfect role due to his music background.
Rob has reportedly been in contact with Courtney, Kurt’s wife, who the tabloid says is playing a role in the production at Universal Pictures.
Courtney supposedly wanted R-Pattz to play Kurt and Scarlett to play her.
“Robert has been calling and emailing her non-stop,” a the story quotes a source as saying. “She has been a bit wound up by his manners, but he is her number one choice to play Kurt.”
“She is adamant Scarlett will play her,” the source said. “Scarlett is friendly with Frances Bean, her daughter with Kurt.”
The project is said to have a working title of All Apologies and Courtney has supposedly been in talks with director David Fincher.
With Kristen Stewart having just completed her own music biopic, The Runaways, the report seems to come out at a rather convenient time.
Gossip Cop must have thought so too as they jumped on the case right away saying, “A source close to Pattinson tells Gossip Cop there is “no accuracy” to today’s report.”
