Now, Robert Pattinson is reportedly in the running to portray a musical icon: Great Britian's The Sun says Courtney Love wants the Twilight star to take on the role of her late husband, Kurt Cobain.
A biopic about the deceased Nirvana frontman has been considered for years, but producers have had trouble casting the lead. Can you envision Pattinson as Cobain, the singer who shot himself in 1994?
Love can, and "she has agreed to the film on condition that she gets to decide the main aspects of the project including director, casting, screenplay and music," sources tell the newspaper. "Robert has been calling and emailing her non-stop... he is her number one choice to play Kurt."
Who might play Courtney? She is "adamant" about Scarlett Johansson for the role, the same insider says. The upcoming Iron Man 2 co-star is friendly with Frances Bean, Love's daughter with Kurt.
