New Kurt Cobain Doc to Premiere on HBO in 2015

The man’s been gone for 20 years but there’s still a huge fascination with Kurt Cobain and Nirvana. The latest examination of his life will debut in 2015 when HBO will offer a documentary called Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck.

Director Brett Morgen has been working on this project since 2007 and is the first doc to feature the full cooperation of Kurt’s family—and that includes Courtney Love and daughter Frances. The movie will feature everything from old home movies that no one has ever seen before to some of Kurt’s artwork, photography and recordings. There will be lots of stuff from the family archives, too, most of which has never been seen before. Plus—and this is really cool—we’ll hear previously unheard Cobain original songs.

There’s no firm release date for the film yet, but it is in post-production and HBO promises to broadcast it sometime next year.
