A new documentary about Kurt Cobain will debut next year on HBO, and this one has a twist—the singer's daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, will be executive producer, reports Entertainment Weekly. The documentary by Brett Morgen is billed as the first film about Cobain authorized by his family, though Pitchfork notes that the press release makes no mention of widow Courtney Love. Morgen says the documentary will make clear that Cobain was not just a singer but a talented "visual artist." The title will be Montage of Heck, a name Cobain himself gave to a mix tape he made at age 21. (More Kurt Cobain stories.)
