According to Deadline, the long-speculated Jeff Buckley biopic is currently in the works and is set to start rolling as soon as this fall season. Jake Scott (Welcome to the Rileys) is set to direct the movie, with Buckley’s mother Mary Guibert serving as the film’s executive producer. Jeff Buckley tragically passed away in 1997 at the age of 30, having only recorded one album, 1994’s Grace.
Full details and the cast for the movie have yet to be revealed. Naturally, rumors have it that James Franco will be playing Buckley.
