U.K. newspaper The Sun says Pattinson has been in contact with Courtney Love, who is reportedly taking part in the movie’s production with Universal.
Scarlett Johansson is said to be in line to play Love. “This is a big money deal for Courtney,” an unnamed source told The Sun. “She has agreed to the film on the condition that she gets to decide the main aspects of the project including director, casting, screenplay and music. Robert has been calling and emailing her non-stop. She has been a bit wound up by his manners, but he is her number one choice to play Kurt.”
