Robert Pattinson will play grunge rock icon Kurt Cobain, RadarOnline.com has learned, in a Universal Pictures biopic of the late Nirvana front man tentatively titled All Apologies.

Pattinson has been in talks with Cobain's widow Courtney Love, the UK Sun reported, adding that the Twilight star is enamored with the role since he considers himself a musician first, then an actor.

An insider close to Love told the paper what's been going on behind the scenes.

"This is a big money deal for Courtney -- she has agreed to the film on condition that she gets to decide the main aspects of the project including director, casting, screenplay and music," the source said. "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.”

With the role, Pattinson looks to be taking the same career path as his Twilight co-star -- and rumored lover -- Kristen Stewart, who played rocker Joan Jett in The Runaways.
