DIRECTOR BRETT MORGEN TALKS KURT COBAIN FILM DETAILS
Brett Morgen, who also directed the Rolling Stones film Crossfire Hurricane, dished to NME about some details regarding the upcoming Kurt Cobain film that he says has been in the works for five years. Courtney Love and the Cobain estate brought in Morgen to work on the film.
“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 sprit,” Morgen said.
“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. 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.” Source
