Gigwise is reporting that Courtney Love, who’s executive producing a Nirvana biopic tentatively titled All Apologies, has targeted the Twilight series’ Robert Pattinson to play Kurt Cobain. This will have lots of people rolling their eyes, of course, but not me: I like R-Patts just fine, and I have no real reason to think he couldn’t pull it off as well as anyone. Also, at least it’s not fucking Jared Leto.
The really awesome thing about this story is the part where we learn that Courtney is “adamant” that she’s played by Scarlett Johansson, which, you know, totally makes sense. I’m currently producing a Mike Conklin biopic, and I’ve been adamant about being played by a combination of Johnny Depp, Steve McQueen and a young Sean Connery.
