Ewan McGregor set to play Kurt Cobain?

Ewan McGregor is reportedly being lined up to play the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. Cobain’s widow, Courtney Love has acquired the rights to Charles Cross’ popular biography on her late husband and McGregor (who has already aped Iggy Pop in the trashy Velvet Goldmine) is believed to be Love’s number one choice to play the singer.

An insider on the planned movie told the Daily Express that
"a number of actors have been talked about the role but Ewan has
emerged as the number one choice." The project will be the first film proper about the writer of Smells Like Teen Spirit (amongst other great tracks obviously) who committed suicide in 1995,
although moviemaker Gus van Sant cast actor Michael Pitt as a Cobain
lookalike in 2005 movie Last Days. [via]
