The Nirvana frontman's daughter will executive produce the HBO film ‘Montage of Heck’
Kurt Cobain's daughter Frances Bean will executive produce a documentary for HBO and Universal about her late father's life. The film is titled Montage Of Heck and Frances Bean is clearly thrilled to be making it. It's the first documentary about the Nirvana frontman that has been authorised by his family.
Brett Morgen, best known for his Rolling Stones documentary Crossfire Hurricane, is set to direct the film. Cobain committed suicide in 1994, when Bean was two years old. The film reportedly focusses on his life away from the band.
"The thing about him people might not know too is that he was an incredible visual artist and left behind a treasure chest of comic books, paintings, Super 8 films, all sorts," Morgen told told last year. "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. He was incredibly funny too, and the film has to reflect his spirit".
Although Morgen had hoped to release the film this year, it's scheduled for international release in 2015. As for the odd choice of title? Well, Montage of Heck takes its name from a mind-melting, genre-blending mixtape that Cobain made in 1986. You can listen to it in full below:
