Soaked in Bleach is an upcoming American docudrama directed by Benjamin Statler, who co-wrote and produced it with Richard Middelton and Donnie Eichar. The film details the events leading up to the death of Kurt Cobain, as seen through the perspective of Tom Grant, the private detective who was hired by Courtney Love to find Cobain, her husband, shortly before his death in 1994. It also explores the concept that Cobain's death was not a suicide. The film stars Tyler Bryan as Cobain and Daniel Roebuck as Grant, with Sarah Scott portraying Courtney Love and August Emerson as Dylan Carlson.
The film provides a look at the death of Kurt Cobain (portrayed by Tyler Bryan), the lead singer of the American grunge band Nirvana, as seen through the perspective of Tom Grant (portrayed by Daniel Roebuck). In addition to the dramatization of Cobain's death, the film will combine documentary footage as well as interviews from people associated with the case, including Cobain's attorney, Rosemary Carroll, Norm Stamper and Cyril Wecht.
Soaked in Bleach marks the directorial debut of Benjamin Statler, who co-wrote and produced the films Act of Valor and Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope. Statler co-produced the film with Richard Middelton and Donnie Eichar. The title, "Soaked in Bleach", derives from a lyric off the Nirvana song "Come as You Are" which was the second single from their second album Nevermind. The lyrics from the song are in turn a reference to the Nirvana debut album Bleach.
