According to Variety , a new documentary film focusing on the life of SOUNDGARDEN and AUDIOSLAVE frontman Chris Cornell is in the works.
The film will be produced by Cornell‘s widow, Vicky, along with Brad Pitt and Peter Berg‘s Film 45 production company. Berg (“Lone Survivor”, “Deepwater Horizon”) will direct.
Film 45 is a separate entity from Berg‘s Film 44 film and TV company that is home to his narrative projects.
Cornell, who committed suicide in 2017, was honored last month at a tribute concert in Los Angeles, where the remaining members of SOUNDGARDEN and AUDIOSLAVE, along with METALLICA, FOO FIGHTERS and others, performed.
A box set featuring music from all three of Cornell‘s bands, as well as his solo records, was issued in November.
Cornell was pronounced dead on May 18, 2017 after being found unresponsive in his Detroit hotel room. SOUNDGARDEN had played a show earlier that evening. The 52-year-old had sedatives and an anxiety drug in his system, but died as a result of hanging himself.
