"[Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck] is a raw and visceral journey through Cobain’s life and provides no-holds-barred access to Kurt Cobain’s archives, home to his never-before-seen home movies, recordings, artwork, photography, journals, demos, personal archives, family archives and songbooks," reads a press release. The statement also promises the film will contain Nirvana songs and performances, as well as never-before-heard Cobain originals.

Oscar-nominated filmmaker Brett Morgen, who directed the Rolling Stones documentary Crossfire Hurricane, will write, direct and produce Montage of Heck. Cobain's daughter, visual artist Francis Bean Cobain, will be the film's executive producer.

"I started work on this project eight years ago," says Morgen. "Like most people, when I started, I figured there would be limited amounts of fresh material to unearth. However, once I stepped into Kurt’s archive, I discovered over 200 hours of unreleased music and audio, a vast array of art projects (oil paintings, sculptures), countless hours of never-before-seen home movies, and over 4000 pages of writings that together help paint an intimate portrait of an artist who rarely revealed himself to the media."

Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, which was most likely titled for the recently re-discovered Cobain mixtape of the same name, will air on HBO next year.
