Frances Bean Cobain to Executive Produce HBO’s Kurt Cobain Documentary
Kurt Cobain’s daughter has signed on to executive produce the first completely authorized documentary about the tragic Nirvana rocker.
Oscar-nominated filmmaker Brett Morgen, the man behind the Rolling Stones’ Crossfire Hurricane documentary, wrote, produced and directed Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck with the help and support of the late singer’s family, and now the project has been given a 2015 air date on cable network HBO, with Frances Bean Cobain serving as a production executive.
Morgen reveals the film, which will give fans a rare insight into home movies, recordings, art and photos, as well as previously-unheard Cobain songs, has been a long time in the making.
In a statement issued to WENN, he writes,
“I started work on this project eight years ago. Like most people, when I started, I figured there would be limited amounts of fresh material to unearth. However, once I stepped into Kurt’s archive, I discovered over 200 hours of unreleased music and audio, a vast array of art projects (oil paintings, sculptures), countless hours of never-before-seen home movies, and over 4,000 pages of writings that together help paint an intimate portrait of an artist who rarely revealed himself to the media.”
Cobain committed suicide in 1994. Frances Bean Cobain, 22, is the late star’s only child with Courtney Love.
