Incoming: Kurt Cobain/Nirvana Film Doc

 

Due in 2014… and yes, Courtney’s involved.

By Blurt Staff

The New York Post is reporting that filmmaker Brett Morgen, of Rolling Stones Crossfire Hurricane documentary fame (it airs tonight on HBO), is putting into motion his next project, a film about Kurt Cobain and Nirvana. Courtney Love is involved, having first started talking to Morgen in 2007,  and plans are to release it in 2014.

Morgan is quoted as saying, “Courtney is the one that brought me into this. We’ve been trying to find the right time to put
this film together and the time is now . . . 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.”

Ah. Did not know that Cobain was a filmmaker of note. Anyhow, while you wait for the film, read the BLURT interview with author Gillian G. Gaar, who recently published a biography of Nirvana’s pre-fame years that contains its share of previously unknown revelations. And hey, didja ever hear the story about the pre-Nirvana Kurt Cobain demos that turned up in 2010…?
