After bumming around Hollywood for awhile and finding itself, Jake Scott’s Jeff Buckley biopic is ready to duel with its rival biopic Greetings From Tim Buckley. The untitled biopic has seen Tim Buckley’s challenge of casting Penn Badgley and Imogen Poots and has raised it by casting Reeve Carney. Carney is best known for starring as Peter Parker/Spiderman in Broadway‘s Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark. Carney comes from a strong musical background whereas Gossip Girl‘s Badgley owns an iPod, so this casting already looks like a step in the right direction.
Of course, should Badgley want to level the field a little bit, I’m sure that could be arranged. Shouldn’t be too hard to make it look like an accident. (Deadline)
