A casting call on Backstage indicates that a new movie “about the last days in the life of grunge music icon Chris Cornell” is in production. A representative for the Chris Cornell Estate tells Pitchfork that the film, called Black Days, is “not sanctioned or approved by the estate.” The rep added, “No one contacted the estate for any information.”
Black Days is apparently helmed by Road Rage Films LLC and Amerifilms LLC, which appears to be a company from actor and musician Johnny Holiday, who is associated with Black Days. (Holiday records music under the name Kid Memphis. He also portrayed Carl Perkins in the 2005 Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line.) According to Backstage, Black Days is set to begin filming in Los Angeles next month.
Chris Cornell died in May 2017 at the age of 52. Read Pitchfork’s Afterword feature “Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell Was More Than Just a Grunge Frontman.”
