Kurt Cobain Documentary Set to Release on HBO

Montage of Heck will release previously unseen personal archives

The first fully-authorized documentary about the on-and-off stage life of legendary Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain is slated to release on HBO next year, and has just added his daughter, Frances Bean, as executive producer.

Filmmaker Brett Morgen had access to Cobain’s archive while making Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, which will also include unreleased Cobain originals. The troubled singer passed away in 1994, and the documentary will chronicle the multiple sides of his troubled life.

Morgen began work on the project eight years ago, and rumour has it that he and 22-year-old Frances Bean have recently sifted through 200 hours of audio. Nirvana songs and performances will be used in the documentary, named after a late 80s Nirvana mix-tape. It will also release never-before seen photos, artwork, and home movies.

No firm air date has been released for the highly anticipated project, but as always, we’ll keep you posted.
