And Rob - who has previously made no secret of wanting to share his musical talents with the world - must thrilled at the thought of getting to sink his teeth into playing Cobain, who sensationally shot himself in 1994.
The Sun reports that the 23-year-old has been in regular contact with Courtney Love, who only agreed to the film on the condition that ‘she gets to decide the main aspects of the project, including director, casting, screenplay and music,' says an inside source.
And it looks as though Rob and Scarlett were top of her list.
‘Robert has been calling and emailing her non-stop,' says the source.
‘She has been a bit wound up by his manners, but he is her number one choice to play Kurt.'
Tread carefully Rob. Nobody wants to get on the wrong side of Miss Love...
‘She is adamant Scarlett will play her,' the source added. ‘Scarlett is friendly with Frances Bean, her daughter with Kurt.'
The Hole singer has reportedly been in touch with director David Fincher - the man behind Fight Club, Se7en and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - about the project, which has been given the initital working title of All Apologies.
The film was originally pitched a few years ago, with Zac Efron suggested as the actor to take on Kurt - but was swiftly blasted by Courtney with a very firm no.
