The latest report by 'The Sun'? Rob to play Kurt Cobain...

The source of this article is The Sun, the biggest tabloid in the UK. So grain of salt.

ROBERT PATTINSON has landed his dream film role - playing KURT COBAIN in a Hollywood biopic.
The Twilight star has always thought of himself as a musician rather than an actor, he even reckons his guitar is his best friend.

So securing a part playing the tragic NIRVANA genius, who shot himself in 1994, is ideal for the pin-up.

R-Patz has been in regular contact with Kurt's widow COURTNEY LOVE, who has been handed a key role in the production by bosses at Universal Pictures.

The HOLE singer wanted R-Patz as Kurt and SCARLETT JOHANSSON to portray her. My graphics team have mocked up Rob and Scarlett as the hellraising pair.

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."

Courtney has been in touch with director DAVID FINCHER about the project, which has the working title All Apologies.

He was behind Fight Club, Se7en and The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button.

It's not the first time a studio have tried to make a film about Nirvana, who had hits with Come As You Are and Smells Like Teen Spirit.

A few years ago Sony Pictures were told to sling their hook by Courtney when they floated the idea of ZAC EFRON as Kurt, while Frances Bean would play her mum.

I have to say, the 14-year-old in me was a little bit sick when I found out a Twilight vampire was playing a rock idol.

But at least it's an improvement on the man lined up to play Kurt in the West End - Footballers' Wives star GARY LUCY.

Oh, as If! Rob poor manners? Right. Rob is a true British gentleman. And to say HE was calling and emailing C Love!? Tomfoolery! It would be the other way around for sure. For anyone. He is in high demand!

Rob is all class. This is totally fabricated, I call BS.

I really hope this isn't so, anything Courtney Love holds the key too can't be a good thing, that woman is wack, and selfish and she has done absolutely nothing to honor the memory of her late husband...(other than annoy the remaining members of the band)...

Sorry guys Im a grunge child lol, and while I think Rob would do a great job with that role (even though he looks nothing like Kurt and is to tall to be Kurt), I just can't wrap my head around the idea of ever going to see a movie, buy a CD or anything else that will put money into Courtney Love's pocket :(

Besides Courtney Love is not good company to keep, everything she touches turns into drama and scandal.... ok end of rant - LOL!
