Brett Morgan, director of the Rolling Stones documentary, Crossfire Hurricane, is now bringing the first fully authorized documentary about Kurt Cobain to HBO.
Though Kurt Cobain’s story has been no stranger to many books and films since his death in 1994, this documentary is fully authorized and will show fans the world of Kurt Cobain beyond Nirvana. His daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, is also an executive producer on the project.
Besides exclusive access to many of Cobain’s never-before-seen home movies, artwork, photography, journals and personal archives, filmmakers have crucial participation on the music front. The film will feature dozens of Nirvana songs and performances as well as unheard songs by Cobain.
After stepping into the star’s archive, Morgan discovered over 200 hours of unreleased music and audio that will be included throughout the film. The title of the film “Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck,” comes from a homemade pre-Nirvana mix tape created by the great Cobain.
“Montage of Heck” is a co-production of HBO and Universal Pictures International Entertainment Content Group and will debut in the U.S. in 2015 on HBO.
