London, May 03 (ANI): Actress Scarlet Johansson has confirmed her interest in playing Courtney Love in biopic of the rocker’s late husband Kurt Cobain.

Moviemakers are currently thinking of an idea to bring Nirvana frontman’s life story to the big screen with the help of his widow, Love, who will act as a project adviser, reports The Daily Star.

Love said in recent weeks that she would like either Ryan Gosling or James McAvoy to play her late husband, and named Johansson as her favourite to play her part.

Johansson hasn’t been approached for the project yet - but is ‘intrigued’ about the chances of playing the Hole frontwoman.

“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,” she told MTV News. (ANI)
