Forthcoming Chris Cornell Documentary To Be Directed By Pete Berg, Produced By Brad Pitt

first_imgA forthcoming documentary on late grunge-era rock guitarist and singer Chris Cornell has been given the green light by the Cornell estate to go into production. The project, which has yet to be given an official title, will be produced by Hollywood actor Brad Pitt and acclaimed director Pete Berg (Friday Night Lights, Lone Survivor). Cornell’s widow, Vicky Cornell, will also come on to the project as a producer. The upcoming film is the first official documentary approved by Cornell’s estate since the Soundgarden singer killed himself following a solo concert in Detroit on May 18, 2017.Pitt was one of the many notable entertainers in attendance at the “I Am the Highway: A Tribute to Chris Cornell” concert event at The Forum in Los Angeles last month. Pitt helped welcome Cornell’s daughter Toni and Ziggy Marley to the stage to perform a lovely duet cover of Bob Marley & The Wailers‘ 1980 ballad, “Redemption Song”. With the confirmation of the documentary on Thursday, there’s a pretty good chance that Pitt’s appearance at the all-star event means that footage of the concert could very well end up in the final cut of the film.Related: Pearl Jam Honors Chris Cornell & Tom Petty, Welcomes Soundgarden & Mudhoney Members In SeattleThe report did not state who, if any, of Cornell’s former bandmates, friends, and industry colleagues may appear as interview subjects in the upcoming film. Considering the fact that Cornell’s family is on board in helping to produce the film, fans should also expect to be presented with never-before-seen archival footage of the famous rock singer prior to his untimely death.The upcoming film is the most recent of numerous tributes which have come into existence in the nearly two years since Cornell passed. A statue of Cornell was recently erected in his hometown of Seattle outside of one of the city’s museums. The Cornell estate also recently helped to plan and release a 62-track, 4-disc box set containing 11 previously-unreleased recordings last November.[H/T Variety]last_img read more

Paul Pogba’s a World Cup winner: Rio Ferdinand on criticism

first_imgManchester: Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has backed Paul Pogba in his public altercation with Graeme Souness, stressing that the former Liverpool captain has unfairly targeted his old friend who has won a World Cup with France in 2018.Pogba has struggled with game time with just eight first-team appearances for United this season due to a nagging ankle injury. The French midfielder underwent surgery in January. Football is currently on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.Souness has criticised Pogba throughout his second spell at Old Trafford, questioning his attitude and commitment.When asked about Souness’ comments during a sit-down for United’s official podcast, Pogba admitted that he had never heard of the former Liverpool defender, who responded by saying: “The oldest thing in football comes to mind — put your medals on the table.”Ferdinand added that Pogba’s World Cup winners’ medal is proof of his potential.The ex-United centre-back said on The Beautiful Game Podcast as quoted by Goal: “He hasn’t even played football this year! I don’t know how his name is in people’s mouths, he hasn’t even played football.“I don’t understand it, like why are you chatting about Paul Pogba? He hasn’t played really this season so he shouldn’t be in the conversation.“I don’t understand. Yeah, he’s a great player, huge profile, I understand all that. But he’s being judged or made the villain in this season which he’s played really no part in, so I don’t get it.“Obviously Graeme Souness made a statement about putting your medals on the table. Boy, listen, my man’s got a World Cup winners’ medal. Like, it’s hard to chat to someone when they’ve got a World Cup.“He won four Scudetti in Italy or something. He’s won stuff. Listen, Graeme Souness was a great player and he’s won a lot of stuff.“Listen, my generation, and even worse for Graeme Souness and all the guys in that generation, they’ve got to understand that these guys don’t look at them sometimes. They don’t know who they are.“For Paul Pogba to say he doesn’t know who he is, or wouldn’t know him as a footballer, I believe that. It’s not disrespectful, he doesn’t know him!“As great a player as Souness was — he was a top player, one of the best, if you’re talking about the best British midfielders we’ve ever produced, he’s in the conversation — but Paul Pogba doesn’t know him. Simple as that. And that’s just a difference of generations. So I don’t think it’s disrespectful.” IANSAlso Read: Ri Bhoi Police begins search for KSU leader Ferdinand KharkamniAlso Watch: Hagrama Mohilary organizes a press-meet on Coronavirus situation and distribution of Rationslast_img read more

Stokes shares honours with Gabriel, Roach

first_imgSHANNON Gabriel and Kemar Roach combined to restore some pride to West Indies with a fearsome bowling display against England at Headingley.West Indies’ recent Test exploits have all too often played out with an air of futility, but Shannon Gabriel and Kemar Roach flipped the script yesterday to raise hopes of an evenly-fought Headingley Test against England.Ben Stokes’ sixth Test hundred was yesterday’s abiding memory after an evening session dominated by the all-rounder, but Roach and Gabriel dished out a wonderfully nostalgic display of bowling brilliance, albeit in a display from the tourists tinged with a whiff of ‘what might have been’.West Indies were given the ideal start when Alastair Cook fell to Shannon Gabriel for 11. (Getty Images)Frightful fast bowling was the hallmark of the great West Indies teams and though Gabriel and Roach are far from Joel Garner and Michael Holding, theirs were performances steeped in classic Caribbean cleverness.Four wickets apiece for Roach and Gabriel were rich rewards for their pivotal contributions to a first day in Leeds that saw some of the pride restored to this much-maligned Windies team.A thrashing by an innings and 209 runs in the day-night series opener at Edgbaston was an inauspicious start, though the nature of that defeat was brought on by limp battingBen Stokes presses on to reach his sixth Test centuryperformances after England had posted a domineering 514-8 declared.Those same batsmen that struggled in Birmingham ought to be re-energised in Yorkshire, however, with Gabriel and Roach especially giving them something to work with.Absent at Edgbaston, Gabriel’s recall was immediately rewarded with fast, awkward bowling which accounted for Alastair Cook and exposed the hosts’ fragile underbelly.It was Roach who tucked into the soft meat, trapping Tom Westley (3) plumb in front and then tempting Mark Stoneman (19) into a foolish shot – a far cry from the off-stump kissing beauty that had bowled the same batsman in Birmingham, but no less rewarding.Though Dawid Malan was another underperforming England batsman to depart, there will remain fears that West Indies’ own flakiness could surface as this Test goes on – there were enough signs despite a successful day of it here.Gabriel saw Joe Root dropped on eight before the hosts’ skipper went on to equal AB de Villiers’ record of notching a half-century in 12 consecutive Test matches, while Roach was a foot-stomping vision of anger when he found Stokes’ edge twice in quick succession, only to see the ball bounce out of Kraigg Brathwaite’s palms and then sail through a vacant third-slip position.Stokes was again put down on 98, bringing up his century the next ball, as Gabriel failed to hold onto a ball aimed at the centre of his chest – Roach’s rage was not sated by his bowling partner being the one to wrong him on this occasion.Perhaps that error gave the strapping, but seemingly sapped, Gabriel the second wind he required because England did not score another run after he bounced out centurion Stokes with a well-aimed short ball reminiscent of so many of his predecessors.Such a clinical extraction of the tail gave a topsy-turvy day matching bookends – Gabriel and Roach offering unplayable fare to England batsmen who could do little about it.Only eight sides have scored fewer than 260 runs batting first here and won the Test match – another good omen for Jason Holder’s men, but five dropped catches in the England innings will leave the captain wondering what his hosts could have been restricted to on another day.West Indies ended yesterday’s play on 19-1, still 239 runs adrift of England, but they now know that a better performance with the bat has a chance of being rewarded by Gabriel and Roach’s high-speed heroics.While the recapturing the fire of Garner, Holding, Andy Roberts and Colin Croft has probably never felt more unlikely, the incumbent pace pairing can at least be the driving force for a return to some chest-puffing swagger in this Test.(Sportsmax)last_img read more

As MLB trade deadline approaches, Dodgers find a muddled market

first_img Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “And while we’d love to have a completely flawless team where we didn’t feel like we needed to engage with the other teams, that’s not the case – and I guess it probably never will be where you just don’t feel you couldn’t do something to make yourself better in July. But there are certainly players that we feel like adding them will help us in our pursuit of winning a world championship and that’s what we’re working towards.”Friedman insists that list is not limited to relievers. But the Dodgers’ need seems more obvious this year than previous deadlines.The offense, starting pitching and defense (even with a recent glut of errors) all rank near the top in most statistical categories. But the bullpen ERA of 4.07 is 10th in the majors and their 19 blown saves are second only to the New York Mets. Since 2011, only one team has made the World Series with a bullpen that posted an ERA over 4.00 during the regular season – the 2017 Houston Astros (4.27).Still, the need in the bullpen might not be as great as viscerally felt on nights like Saturday when a quartet of relievers blew a five-run lead against the Miami Marlins.“I agree,” Friedman says. “I think there’s an emotional aspect to if a bullpen doesn’t do its job on a particular night. But so much of our focus is on, if we’re fortunate enough to get into October what will our bullpen look like? Who are those guys and how do they match up against different sides? Those aren’t always the same things.”Three of the four relievers – Caleb Ferguson, J.T. Chargois and Yimi Garcia – who pitched during that eighth-inning disaster Saturday are not likely to be part of the Dodgers’ October bullpen. Kenley Jansen, a resurgent Joe Kelly, Pedro Baez, Kenta Maeda and Julio Urias are.Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Many in that group have to decide how much they are willing to expend in pursuit of a one-game reward – the wild-card, play-in game.Complicating matters for the Dodgers, a good segment of the clear group of buyers are, like them, looking to bolster their bullpen. The combination is driving up the asking prices for the limited number of relievers like Detroit’s Shane Greene, Pittsburgh’s Felipe Vazquez, Kansas City’s Jake Diekman, Cincinnati’s Amir Garrett or San Francisco’s Will Smith potentially available.The Dodgers have addressed their midseason needs in past years without parting with their best prospects – players like Walker Buehler, Cody Bellinger and Dustin May. This year’s market will make it difficult to land any of the top targets without including a top-level prospect such as Keibert Ruiz, Gavin Lux or Tony Gonsolin in the package.Supply, meet demand.“I would argue we’ve traded more prospects than any team in baseball the past four years,” Friedman says, referring to trades that brought in Machado (2018), Yu Darvish (2017), Rich Hill and Josh Reddick (2016) at post-July deadlines.center_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start LOS ANGELES — A year ago at this time, Manny Machado was already in the Dodgers’ lineup.With this year’s midseason trade deadline just more than a week away, though, the trade market has become a crowd of ‘mall walkers,’ milling about and waiting for the stores to open – without knowing which ones might not open at all.“This is the strangest market that I can remember,” Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman says. “Just with the number of teams seemingly in it, within five games of a playoff spot. I’ve had way more conversations with teams that are more on the fence and haven’t decided if they’re going to be on the buy side or the sell side.”Indeed, going into Monday’s games, 20 teams were within 5½ games of a playoff spot. That group includes teams that didn’t expect to be there (the San Francisco Giants and Texas Rangers, for example) and others that have to question whether the numbers reflect actual contention, momentary helium in the standings thanks to a hot streak or favorable scheduling or just inclusion in mediocrity (such as the sub-.500 Pittsburgh Pirates, Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres). Ideally, supplementing that group would mean adding a lefty. Injuries have taken Tony Cingrani and Scott Alexander out of the bullpen mix. Alexander, Caleb Ferguson and Zac Rosscup have combined for a 5.28 ERA and 1.87 WHIP with nine home runs allowed in 44-1/3 innings this season.“Yeah, I think a guy that we feel profiles really well against a left-handed hitter in October is the most obvious fit for us,” Friedman says. “It doesn’t have to be left-hander in that we don’t limit our search to just left-handed relievers. It’s hard enough to line up on trades, even more so when you have very few targets. So a right-handed pitcher who matches up really well against a left-handed hitter and is more balanced fits as well.”With a roster that has already produced the best record in baseball, the room for improvement is appropriately narrow.“We are working feverishly, just like the other 29 teams right now, to do everything in our power to add and augment this group of guys that we have a very high level of belief in – meaning our 25-man roster really and our 40-man roster,” Friedman said. “So any way we can improve we’re going to be as aggressive to improve as we have in the past.” Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco last_img read more
