Chris Cornell's last days will be the basis of a movie titled Black Days, which is set to begin filming next month.
The Soundgarden and Audioslave singer will be played by John Holiday, whose two previous acting roles were both playing musicians named Perkins who were connected to Johnny Cash. He played rockabilly singer Carl Perkins in the 2005 Cash bio-pic Walk the Line and Cash's guitarist Luther Perkins, no relation, in the 2017 TV series Sun Records.
The events leading up to Cornell hanging himself in his room at the MGM Grand Detroit hotel in 2017 will be enacted in the film. Desiré Varona will play Cornell's widow, Vicky. (Blabbermouth)
In other Cornell news, a life-size bronze statue of the late singer outside the Seattle's Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) has been vandalized. A photo shows that someone covered a large portion of it with white paint.
