Cobain's daughter, Frances Bean, will be an executive producer on the film, but his widow, Courtney Love, wasnn't mentioned. As it turns out, Love isn't involved with the film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Love did approach director Brett Morgen to make the film in 2007, but she hasn't been involved with the project "for years."

"She gave me the keys to this kingdom and final cut of the film," Morgen tells THR. "At a certain point, I started working more closely with [Frances Bean]. We [all] agreed that because Courtney was a subject in the film, it would be best if she wasn't given editorial control."

"She hasn't seen the movie," Morgen continued. "I'm not sure she's intending to."

When Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck was announced, Frances Bean tweeted, "I'm really excited for you guys to see Montage of Heck. created an intense yet wonderful examination of Kurt's life & art." The tweet received over 1,000 retweets, including one from Love.

Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January, followed by television and big-screen releases in 2015.
