Scarlett Johansson to play Courtney Love in biopic?

Apparently the popular actress Scarlett Johansson has expressed interest in portraying the role of Courtney Love in an upcoming film about Kurt Cobain:

"Moviemakers are currently thinking of an idea to bring Nirvana frontman's life story to the big screen with the help of his widow, Love, who will act as a project adviser, reports The Daily Star.

Love said in recent weeks that she would like either Ryan Gosling or James McAvoy to play her late husband, and named Johansson as her favourite to play her part.

Johansson hasn't been approached for the project yet - but is 'intrigued' about the chances of playing the Hole frontwoman.

'I know that there is a script. That's as much as I know about it. I'm a big fan of Courtney's, and I think she's very, very talented. But I don't know anything about the project. I think the idea is interesting and intriguing, but I would have to really wrap my head around it,' she told MTV News."
