Robert PattinsonSmells like a rumor: Robert Pattinson has landed the role of Kurt Cobain in a film about the grunge rocker's life, the British newspaper The Sun is claiming.

Citing a "source" Britain's largest newspaper says the casting of Pattinson is a key condition for Cobain's widow Courtney Love, who reportedly has a large role in the film's production.

UPDATE: SPIN.com spoke to Courtney Love's manager, Jonathan Daniel, about the rumor today, to which he said, "That's an amazing story, and the first I've heard of any of this."

"Robert has been calling and e-mailing her non-stop," the source is quoted in the article. "But he is her number one choice to play Kurt."

The article states that Love's choice to play herself is Scarlett Johansson. "She is adamant Scarlett will play her," the source tells the newspaper.

Does this sound crazy? Kind of. But at the same time, the Sun features graphics of what Cobain would look like Pattinson-ized and it was pretty intriguing. Further, Rob does love his grunge and his guitar.

Love is also reportedly in contact with director David Fincher ('Fight Club') to direct the film, which has the working title 'All Apologies.'
