Chris Cornell's life story's coming to a screen near you, eventually. UMe

A new documentary about the renowned late Soundgarden and Audioslave singer/songwriter Chris Cornell is in production, according to Variety. The film is being produced by the Seattle music legend's widow, Vicky Cornell, in conjunction with Brad Pitt and the Film 45 company, whose boss, Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights, Deepwater Horizon), will direct.

Cornell died in 2017 after a Soundgarden show at Detroit's Fox Theater. The death was ruled a suicide, but Vicky Cornell filed a lawsuit against Chris's doctor for "negligently" prescribing him "dangerous mind-altering controlled substances." (An autopsy revealed painkillers and anti-anxiety meds in Cornell's bloodstream.) Last weekend, Cornell won a posthumous Best Rock Performance Grammy for "When Bad Does Good."

Below, check out the January 16 Soundgarden concert at LA's Forum, I Am the Highway: A Tribute to Chris Cornell. (Note: The sound quality leaves something to be desired.)
