Scarlett Johansson says she would love to play Courtney Love in a biopic of singer Kurt Cobain Movie producers are already taking about the possibility to bring the Nirvana frontman's life story to the big screen with the guidance of his widow. Love recently said she wanted Scarlett to play as herself. “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," Scarlett said.
