Friday April 9, 2010

Twilight's Robert Pattinson is said to be over the moon after reportedly landing the role of grunge legend Kurt Cobain in a forthcoming biopic.

And not only will the British actor have the chance to show off his musical talents, but he’ll also have Scarlett Johansson as his leading lady, The Sun has reported.

Courtney Love, the widow of Nirvana frontman Kurt - who shot himself in 1994 - is said to have a key role in the production of the movie.

Fight Club’s David Fincher is set to direct the project, which currently has the working title All Apologies.
