EXCLUSIVE: Los Angeles-based VMI Worldwide closed a pair of major theatrical deals at the EFM on its Kurt Cobain true-crime drama.

Ascot Elite acquired rights for Germany and Tomorrow Films for Japan following buyers screenings in Berlin.

Soaked In Bleach recounts the events surrounding the death 20 years ago of the Nirvana frontman as seen through the eyes of Tom Grant, the private investigator hired by Courtney Love in 1994 to track down her missing husband.

The film develops as a narrative mystery with cinematic re-creations, interviews with key experts and witnesses and the examination of official artifacts from the 1994 case.

Benjamin Statler directed and co-wrote and produced through his Valiant Productions with Donnie Eichar as well as Richard Middleton of Daredevil Films.
