Kurt Cobain Film Coming Soon
A new documentary film about Kurt Cobain is in the works, with tentative release scheduled for sometime in 2014. As reported by the New York Post, producer-director Brett Morgen is heading up the project. Most recently, Morgen was the force behind Crossfire Hurricane, the documentary about the Rolling Stones that debuted last night (Nov. 15) on HBO.
"Courtney [Love] is the one that brought me into this," said Morgen, adding that he and Love have been discussing the project since 2007. "We’ve been trying to find the right time to put this film together and the time is now." Morgen went to praise Cobain effusively. "Kurt was not only an amazing songwriter and musician, he was an incredible artist and filmmaker. So we are going to do the movie sort of like a third-person autobiography – [as] if Kurt was around and making a film about his life."
