Are Robert Pattinson and Scarlett Johansson set to play Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love?

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant

Please take this with a grain of salt, but rumors are swirling that everyone’s favorite vampire heartthrob Robert Pattinson is set to play Kurt Cobain in an upcoming biopic.  And when I say “grain of salt”, please know that I almost didn’t even post this because of how unreliable the source is.  But, people love their Robert Pattinson news and we have to give the people what they want.  The rumor continues with the notion that Scarlett Johansson is also set to star in the film as Kurt Cobain’s wife, Courtney Love.  But I wasn’t completely blowing it off until they said that David Fincher is circling the film as director.  I’m not saying he wouldn’t do it, but that seems like a lot of big names attached to a project and somehow I don’t think a London tabloid is going to break a story like that.

But when I step back and think about it, I can actually see Bob Patty in the title role.  He has that look and this could be a good chance for him to break out of the Twilight series.  Plus, he may want to keep pace with Kristen Stewart, who just finished playing Joan Jett in THE RUNAWAYS.  So, what do you think?  Is Pattinson a good fit as Kurt Cobain?
