A planned biopic about the life of electric guitar player Kurt Cobain may star Scarlett Johansson in the role of his wife Courtney Love.

Speaking to MTV News, Johansson described the prospect of playing Love in the film as "interesting and intriguing".

"I'm a big fan of Courtney's and I think she's very, very talented," said the actress.

"It would be a challenge [to play her], definitely would be a challenge."

Johansson added that she believes a script has already been written for the film but is yet to receive any official contact about playing the role.

Last month, the Sun reported that Twilight star Robert Pattinson is desperate to land the part of Kurt Cobain in the film.

A source told the newspaper he has been emailing and calling Love – who has been given control over casting the film – "non-stop" to beg her to let him play the Nirvana star.
