The Jeff Buckley biopic was first announced five years ago, and back then many of you said James Franco should star as Buckley. According to Deadline the film will be directed by Jake Scott, and (as mentioned before) will be produced by Buckley’s mother Mary Guibert. The rights to the movie also come with the rights to the Jeff Buckley song catalog and to Dream Brother: The Lives And Music Of Jeff And Tim Buckley as a filming resource. Now that it looks like it’s moving ahead (a Ryan Jaffe-penned script is already complete too), are there any new names to throw into the ring or is James Franco still the best choice? Guys, don’t forget that Robert Pattinson sings.
