The film is due out next year and will be the first “fully authorised” movie about Kurt Cobain.
“[Kurt was] a contradiction,” director Brett Morgen wrote in a statement. “He could be sincere and sentimental, and also ironic and sarcastic. He was sweet and sour. He was incredibly funny too, and the film has to reflect his spirit.”
Over 200 Hours Of Unreleased Music Discovered
Kurt’s family gave the director, Brett, unprecedented access to the late singer’s personal and family archives, including home movies, journals and unearthed demos.
“I discovered over 200 hours of unreleased music and audio,” Brett wrote, “a vast array of art projects (oil paintings, sculptures), countless hours of never-before-seen home movies, and over 4,000 pages of writings.”
It sounds like this documentary will be nothing short of epic! HollywoodLifers, are you excited about Kurt Cobain’s documentary? Will you watch it next year? Let us know!
