Robert Pattinson To Play Kurt Cobain In New Film

Robert Pattinson To Play Kurt Cobain In New Film-photo

Courtney Love may not be completely lucid, but at least she got her mind right when looking to cast a rumored Kurt Cobain biopic. Love is reportedly courting the most wonderful, magnificent actor of Our Time, Robert Pattinson for the role of Kurt and Robert is rumored to be open to the idea.

The casting would make sense, Robert does bear some resemblance to Kurt and we all know how Robert loves wallowing in his cute grungey-ness.

Love is also reportedly looking to cast Scarlett Johansson to play Love in the film. Oh, Courtney, Scarlett may be blonde but that is where the resemblance to you begins and ends. Of course, if we were casting a film about our life we would be hiring the best looking actors to play ourselves, even if the physical resemblance is thin.

Love is also looking to tap David Fincher to direct the film. Fincher has previously directed Fight Club.

If Robert does end up taking the role, it might introduce his dreaminess to the over-30 crowd, and the more Robert handsomeness that is spread around, the better. Also, maybe girlfriend Kristen Stewart can give him some tips on how to play a rock legend since her turn as Joan Jett in The Runaways was so successful.

    I'm going to shoot myself. I don't care how good of an actor R.Pattz is. There are SO many good indie actors out there who look like Kurt and can play the role so much better and much more properly. This scares me more than the past rumors of him playing Jeff Buckley. His Twilight fame will just tarnish this film. I don't want to blame Rob cuz I'm sure he's just as disgusted with the casting choice as the fans are. Courtney Love is just going for another shot to be a suga-mama to the new handsome It-Boy (Remember "But Julian, I'm not that older than you" ).

    There is something we can do, not see the movie. If Robert does it, I will not go to see it. Former bandmates should be the only ones that ever oversee a bio pic of a musician and consult the wifes/gfs/etc ONLY for the scenes involving them. Kurt was never a macho man, but Robert doesn't even have the balls to play that.

    OMG THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HATE ALL OF YOU WHO THINK THAT THIS IS OKAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE HIM AS EDWARD BUT SERIOUSLY KURT COBAIN?!?!? THE MAN, THE LEGEND, AS IF COURTNEY LOVE DOESNT TARNISH HIS MEMORY ENOUGH LETS ADD THIS GUY TO THE MIX. I DONT KNOW A SINGLE NIRVANA FAN WHO WILL GO SEE THIS! THIS IS RIDICULOUS! ALL THIS IS IS HOLLYWOOD TRYING TO MAKE ANOTHER MILLION. NO OFFENSE TO RPATZ, I JUST DONT THINK HE IS FIT TO PLAY HIM. HE CANT SING LIKE KURT, HE CERTAINLY WILL LOOK COMPLETELY UNCOMFORTABLE ROCKING OUT AND SHOOTING HEROIN. HE IS GOING TO RUIN THIS AND I'M SURE KURT IS LOOKING DOWN ON US NOW AND LAUGHING AT HOW MUCH HIS LEGACY IS BEING SHOT TO HELL BY THIS HAPPENING. I DIED A LITTLE INSIDE TODAY. OF ALL WEEKS FOR THIS TO HAPPEN IT HAS TO BE ON THE WEEK OF HIS 16TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY. F OFF HOLLYWOOD. All caps? Why are you screaming at us?

    This is just wrong. Now, I'm not going to like Robert Pattinson, but I'm trying to stay neautral here. Kurt Cobain was an icon, a f*cking legend, and to have some loser who's only famous because he plays a possesive/obsessive-to-the-point-of-freaky glittering vegetarian vampire (who has completely turned all sane people OFF of vampires), playing Kurt Cobain, is such a nasty, horrible idea. I mean, Courtney seems to have a bit of a thing for Rob, she's even spoken about wanting him to date Frances Bean, clearly she's only putting him in the movie in order to try and make that happen. Or, she's lost what little bit of her mind that she has left. This is a truly, truly disturbing thought, and everyone supporting this idea - I suggest you all go talk to a shrink. That isn't healthy!

    I would've thought Jared Leto would've been the perfect choice. I didn't think about that but now that you mention it I think I would like Jared better than Robert....a whole lot better :P

    Thank God! It's all a rumor. i was going to have a heart attack. i think Joe Anderson (Max from Across The Universe) would be a good fit.

    i sure as hell hope not. it really pisses me off that they choose these 'of the moment' young actors that havent really contributed anything worthwhile to the film industry.....no way to represent kurt's legacy., only bastardize it.

    Kurt Cobain must be rolling over in his grave. There is no way this is a good casting choice. This is a joke. But then again, Courtney made their relationship a joke as well. exactly!

    I'm an over 30 Nirvana fan and think the casting would be perfect. Robert is very musical with a soulfulness and hard edge that would make him great in the role. Some might say, "no way", but hopefully Courtney Love would stick an extended middle finger at them and stick to whoever she truly believes would be great for the role. That's what Kurt would have done.

    If there is any merit to this I would love to see RPattz playing Cobain. They both have a tortured look to them.
