Hollywood actor Brad Pitt is co-producing a new documentary film about late Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog singer Chris Cornell.
Variety reports that the film will be produced by Cornell’s widow, Vicky, alongside Brad Pitt and Peter Berg’s Film 45 production company. Acclaimed Patriots Day, Deepwater Horizon and Lone Survivor director Peter Berg will also direct the documentary.
Although they haven’t revealed any further details, a representative for Chris Cornell’s estate corroborated that the documentary is in the works.
Last month, Brad Pitt appeared on stage at the I Am The Highway: A Tribute To Chris Cornell tribute concert at The Forum in Los Angeles to introduce a performance from Cornell’s daughter Toni.
