There’s a Soundgarden documentary in the works, from the team behind Super Duper Alice Cooper. Says co-director Reginald Harkema:

“We’re going to concentrate on [the ’90s] era mostly. It’ll probably be like 70 to 75 percent mid-’80s to the breakup, and then catch up on the reunion and the present day. We’d like to shoot some big special concert, and maybe use that as a structural spine. We’re going to shoot all the interviews so they’re more on-camera, so you can kind of get the emotion in the faces. There’s a lot of stuff that they went through, and a lot of stuff that they [shrug off], that I think we can dig deep underneath, and get back to how they felt emotionally at the time.”
