As reported by Variety, the film about Cornell’s life will be produced by his widow, Vicky Cornell. Vicky will work alongside Brad Pitt and Peter Berg’s production company, Film 45.

As Film 45 is a non-scripted entertainment company, the film will likely be made up of interviews with Cornell’s loved ones alongside archived clips of him and his bands. An extensive career that included 16 GRAMMY nominations, multiple iconic bands, and an incredibly caring personality leaves the filmmakers with plenty to work with.

More details are expected soon.
