Hollywood Reporter reveals:
Musician Jeff Buckley is getting the biopic treatment. Writer-director Brian Jun, whose Steel City was nominated for the grand jury prize at January’s Sundance Film Festival, will write and direct a feature based on the musician’s life. The movie is being produced by Buckley’s mother, Mary Guibert, and Michelle Sy, who executive produced Finding Neverland.
A script won’t be ready for months, so they’re nowhere near casting. According to Spin Jeff’s mom says: “So, now, my friends, you can swing on the chandeliers speculating about which actors will play which parts.”
Who would you like to see play the late singer/songwriter? Aside from Missy Elliott?
