Jeff Buckley movie in the works


Rocker Jeff Buckley will have his story transferred to film, with writer-director Brian Jun (“Steel City”) announcing plans to write and direct a film based on the musician’s life.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film, being produced by Buckley’s mother, Mary Guibert, and Michelle Sy, isn’t the first attempt at re-telling Buckley’s story on screen. Last year, writer-producer Train Houston secured the rights to “Dream Brother: The Lives & Music of Jeff & Tim Buckley,” a book by Entertainment Weekly music critic David Browne.

Buckley was considered by critics one of the most promising artists of his generation after he released his debut album, “Grace,” in 1994. Such musicians as Robert Plant, Elton John, Bob Dylan and Paul McCartney praised the album, and his cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” is considered the definitive version of that song. Just as his career was taking off, however, Buckley drowned in Memphis, Tenn., in 1997.

Brad Pitt expressed playing Buckley last year, but it’s believed the musician’s estate turned him flat down.
