Robert Pattinson could have got his dream role. The British actor who always shows an interest in music is reportedly cast as Kurt Cobain in a Universal Pictures' biopic which will be directed by David Fincher and titled "All Apologies" like the song from Cobain's band Nirvana.

According to The Sun, Pattinson has been in regular contact with Cobain's widow Courtney Love who has a great role in the production. Despite the fact that she "has been a bit wound up" by his intense contact, the depicter of Edward Cullen in "Twilight" film series is her first choice to play the Nirvana's lead singer. Moreover, the site claims Love wants Scarlett Johansson to play herself.

Previously, the Hole's member has allegedly forced Sony Pictures to forget their idea when they proposed Zac Efron to portray Cobain.

Robert Pattinson who has his breakthrough after taking the lead role in "Twilight" is currently filming "Bel Ami", which is set in London and Budapest, Hungary. He will reprise his role as the hundred-year-old vampire in "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse" which will arrive in U.S. theaters on June 30.

You know i really cant picture Rob playing as Kurt Cobain. Let alone Zac Efron. I mean theyre both adorable [mostly Zac Efron] but i just cant picture em being high all the time & singing. I mean Kurt Cobain has or had an awesome voice. Its obvious Courtney Love is doing all this for money...which is a shame. I really feel bad for Francis...thats their little girls name right? Well anyhow, i feel bad 4her. Her moms always out partying, always high or drunk. I mean what kinda mom is that. I member she told a magazine or in an interview i dont member she said she wished she had a mom. that her mom doesnt even act like a mom & that she wished her dad [kurt] was alive. poor her. i cant imagine growing up like that. Why is Courtney Love even famous? I wonder why Kurt chose her? Well he was always high so that explains everything RIP KURT COBAIN!!! I LOVE YOU!
