First Authorized Kurt Cobain Documentary In The Works

The first official documentary on the late rocker Kurt Cobain is in the works, according to Billboard. It will be aired in November 2015 on HBO.

The Brett Morgen-directed "Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck" is the first documentary authorized by the late Nirvana frontman's family. Cobain's daughter, visual artist Frances Bean executive produced the project. Singer Courtney Love, Cobain's wife, will also be involved in the project, according to The Verge.

Frances took to Twitter to speak about her mother's contributions to the documentary, saying "she absolutely participated in it. She provided documentation, photos, home movies, artifacts & was interviewed in depth."

The doc will feature Cobain's archives and songs and materials that have not been seen before, according to Spin.

Morgen shared some details about project's background in a statement, saying: "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."

He then shared the materials he discovered from Cobain's archive and what fans can expect to see from the doc.

"Once I stepped into Kurt's archive, I discovered over 200 hours of unreleased music and audio," he started. "A vast array of art projects (oil paintings, sculptures), countless hours of never-before-seen home movies, and over 4000 pages of writings that together help paint an intimate portrait of an artist who rarely revealed himself to the media."

"Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck" is also produced by HBO Documentary Films and Universal Pictures International Entertainment Content Group. The documentary will also be distributed internationally after its premiere on HBO.

There have been a large number of films and documentaries made about Cobain since he passed. The most notable is AJ Schnack and Michael Azerrad's "About a Son," released in 2006. The documentary was nominated for a Truer Than Fiction Award at the Independent Spirit Awards in 2007 and a Chlotrudis Award for Best Documentary in 2008.
