An official, career-spanning Soundgarden documentary is on the way. Canadian indie director Reg Harkema is teaming up with Banger Films’ Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn on the project.
“We’re going to concentrate on [the ’90s] era mostly,” Harkema says. “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.”
He continues, “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.”
Soundgarden are currently touring without Matt Cameron, who’s busy with Pearl Jam, but Harkema says the drummer will be playing with Soundgarden at “some key shows” which the documentary crew will try to get on camera
