Brett Morgen Gives Outline Of His Kurt Cobain Film

Written by Kiel Egging on January 5, 2013

Director Brett Morgen has revealed that his upcoming film on Kurt Cobain will “reflect his spirit”.

Morgen, who has been working on the currently untitled film about the late Nirvana frontman for the last five years, gave an outline of the project in a chat with NME.

“If you think about Kurt, he’s a contradiction. 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.”

Morgen has high hopes for the film – hinting at a release date sometime in 2014, and stating that he’s aiming to create an experience similar to Roger Walters’ The Wall.

“The thing about him people might not know too is that he was an incredible visual artist and left behind a treasure chest of comic books, paintings, Super8 films, all sorts,” he said.

“We’re hoping the Cobain film, that’ll hopefully be released in 2014, will be this generation’s The Wall – a mix of animation and live action that’ll allow the audience to experience Kurt in a way they never have before. It’s very ambitious.”

Morgen directed the Rolling Stones’ film Crossfire Hurricane, which was released late last year to celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary.
