HBO announced today that the Kurt Cobain documentary the world has been waiting for will finally see the light of day, in 2015. Called Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, the film, which has been at least eight years in the making, purports to be the first fully authorized feature about the legendary Nirvana front man’s life. It’s being made with the cooperation of Cobain’s family (his daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, is executive-producing the project), with Academy Award–nominated filmmaker Brett Morgen attached to write, direct, and help with producing. The doc touts nonpareil access and will shed light on Cobain’s past by showcasing pieces from his vast archives: home movies, artwork, songbooks, and previously unreleased originals. (Yes, you read that last part right. Sorry, you have to wait till the new year.)
