Published Apr 07, 2014The Seattle police recently reexamined the details surrounding Kurt Cobain's death and found no evidence of foul play, but some folks evidently haven't given up the idea that it might not have been a suicide. That's the gist of the impending docudrama Soaked in Bleach.
The film — which gets its name from a line in "Come as You Are" — mixes interview footage with dramatic reenactments. It centres on private investigator Tom Grant, who Cobain's widow Courtney Love hired to find her husband shortly before his death. Over the last two decades, Grant has been one of the most outspoken proponents of the theory that Love was responsible for Cobain's death.
Watch the trailer below. It presents an accusatory look at the case and the evidence surrounding the Nirvana star's passing. In the dramatic recreations, Tyler Bryan plays Cobain while Sarah Scott is Love and Daniel Roebuck is Tom Grant.
The flick was directed by Benjamin Statler, who co-wrote and co-produced along with both Richard Middelton and Donnie Eichar. The release date hasn't yet been confirmed, but a description on Facebook promises that it will be out in 2014.
Cobain is believed to have died on April 5, 1994. His body was found on April 8, which is 20 years ago as of tomorrow (Tuesday).
