Scarlett Johansson to Portray Courtney Love in Heavier Than Heaven?

by at . Comments

Courtney Love wants Scarlett Johansson to portray her in the upcoming biopic Heavier Than Heaven.

Sounds like Love has a slightly distorted image of herself, doesn't it?

The widow of Kurt Cobain is reportedly also hoping Half Nelson star Ryan Gosling plays her late husband in the movie. The flick will be based on Charles Cross's biography of Cobain.

Can you picture Scarlett Johansson as Courtney Love?

A source said: "Kirsten Dunst was rumored to be in the frame, but Courtney really admires Scarlett and has already sent the contract out for her to sign. Courtney even copied Scarlett's sleek blonde movie look when she was in London for the Fashion Rocks party last year.

"She wants the best actors to portray them - she will be on set all the time giving Scarlett and Ryan advice on what it was like being one part of the most notorious couples since Sid and Nancy. It will be explosive."
