Rock News 18/02/2019

A new documentary on the life of late Soundsgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog frontman Chris Cornell is in the works.

Variety report that the film will be produced by Hollywood star Brad Pitt and Cornell's widow, Vicky, while director duties will be undertaken by Peter Berg.

No official details have been revealed, but a representative for Chris Cornell's estate confirmed that work on the documenary is underway.

In January, Vicky Cornell and Brad Pitt appeared at the "I Am the Highway: A Tribute to Chris Cornell" benefit concert in LA. 

The gig featured performances from Foo Fighters, Metallica, Soundgarden, John Homee, Toni Cornell, Ziggy Marley and even Miley Cyrus.

Last week Cornell also won a Grammy for Best Rock Performance, the third of his career.
