Jeff Buckley Biopic in the Works

A biopic about the tragically short life of singer Jeff Buckley is in the works. No news there -- ever since his death, people have been discussing this. But this project is being overseen by his mom, who has the rights to Jeff's music. She resisted before, but realized it would be made one way or another (one project was pegged to a biography) and decided biopics like "Ray" and "Walk The Line" meant it could be done without sucking. Besides, making a movie about Buckley without using his music would GUARANTEE it would suck. And who should play him? Jared Leto? James Franco?

I met Jeff Buckley once. He was mighty good looking. Jared Leto would be a good choice in that regard.
