Jeff Buckley Bio Pic is in the Works

Jeff Buckley picA biopic based on the life of the late musician Jeff Buckley is currently in the works. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Brian Jun is writing and directing the film, but an actor to play the lead has not been cast. Jeff drowned in 1997 at age 30 after releasing just one studio album, the critically-acclaimed "Grace", but was considered to be one of the most promising artists of his generation.

His fans included musicians as Robert Plant, Elton John, Bob Dylan and Paul McCartney who praised the debut album, especially Jeff's cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" which is considered the definitive version of that song.

Just as his career was taking off, Buckley was in Memphis, Tennessee, when he jumped in a river fully clothed and wearing heavy boots to cool off on a hot day. His body was recovered five days later. His father, Tim Buckley, was a famous folk and jazz singer in the 1960s who died from a heroin overdose at the age of 28.

The film was written and will be produced by Train Houston, who has bought the rights to the book "Dream Brother: The Music and Lives of Tim and Jeff Buckley." Jeff's life will be the main focus of the movie, and his father Tim will be covered in flashbacks.

Let's hope they seriously consider James Franco for the role.


i just saw this video with Elton John in it. I guess that it’s about Dave Stewart’s (from the Eurythmics) first group in the 70s that never released their album back then, and now there’s a big VH1 special on them.

anyone else heard about this?
