A representative for Chris Cornell’s estate has said the upcoming biopic focusing on the musician’s final days is unauthorized.
Walk the Line actor Johnny Holiday will portray the Soundgarden frontman in Black Days, and filmmakers are still searching for additional cast members to play a variety of characters, including Cornell’s wife, Vicky. An announcement on the film’s official website reads: “From the cast of the Academy Award-winning Walk the Line comes a based-on-true-events story. John Holiday embodies a legend.” No further details have been revealed.
Cornell’s estate representative has said the movie is “not sanctioned or approved by the estate”, adding, “No one contacted the estate for any information.”
