Universal is in negotiations with Courtney Love, Kurt Cobain’s widow, to make a biopic based on the legendary artist’s life and his band Nirvana. Courtney apparently agreed to give the green light, if Robert Pattinson accepts to play Kurt and Scarlett Johansson portrays herself in the movie.
A source said: “This is a big money deal for Courtney. 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.
“Robert has been calling and emailing her non-stop. 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. Scarlett is friendly with Frances Bean, her daughter with Kurt.”
Robert is an icon for teens everywhere. Kurt Cobain is a legend. Robert would take a lot of young girls who have no clue who the Nirvana singer is to the theater and the movie would probably be a big box office success.
We cannot wait to see Robert singing again. I can almost imagine him rocking out to “Smells Like Teen Spirit” (one of my favorite Nirvana classics). Rob’s Twilight co-stars Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning opened the doors for band-inspired biopics with the movie “The Runaways”.
