Scarlett Johansson to play Courtney Love?

Biopic promises 'accurate, credible glimpse of her life with Kurt'

Courtney Love is reportedly keen that she should be played by Scarlett Johansson in a proposed biopic of Kurt Cobain, currently in development.

Love acquired the rights to Charles Cross's biography of Cobain, Heavier Than Heaven, and will act as executive producer for the movie. According to Marie Claire, a pal of Love's said: "Courtney really admires Scarlett and has already sent the contract out for her to sign. She wants the best actors to portray them.

"Kirsten Dunst was rumoured to be in the frame, but Courtney really admires Scarlett. This is a labour of love for Courtney and she is putting her heart and soul into making it an accurate, credible glimpse of her life with Kurt."

We'd like to suggest that if Ms Love really wants to deliver an "an accurate, credible glimpse", she should reconsider dumping the dowdy Johansson for someone who more accurately reflects her outer and inner beauty. Our vote goes to the radiant Tracey Emin, who's no slouch in the rock'n'roll lifestyle department. ®
