It. Is. On.

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)

Oh, right. Clinical depression. Sorry, I forgot about that.

Jeff Buckley enjoyed a short career, but his rabid following and influence makes it small wonder that singer-songwriter is getting the biopic treatment after passing away at the age of 30 in 1997.

The untitled film will be helmed by Jake Scott, director of Welcome to the Rileys. Scott cut his teeth directing music videos by R.E.M., U2, and Radiohead, so it should be interesting to see how this impacts the use of Buckley’s music in the film.

What’s also interesting is that the film is written by Ryan Jaffe, who wrote The Rocker. Interesting because I am surprised anyone allowed Jaffe near a keyboard after that film. Take the sour with the sweet, and so on.

Jeff Buckley‘s music had a profound reach on many prominent musicians, and his untimely drowning in Memphis left many wondering what could have been. That said, he didn’t achieve a remarkable amount of success or notoriety during his brief career, so this movie will prove a revelation to many that aren’t familiar with his work.

Please, dear God, don’t let the producers cast Jared Leto in this role. (Deadline)

‘Welcome to the Rileys’ Trailer Brings the Uncomfortable Silences http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/welcome-to-the-rileys-trailer-brings-the-uncomfortable-silences/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/welcome-to-the-rileys-trailer-brings-the-uncomfortable-silences/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 James want. The trailer for Welcome to the Rileys, starring James Gandolfini, Melissa Leo, and Kristen Stewart, has been released. The film is directed by Jake Scott, son of well-known indie director Ridley Scott. It's about a couple driven apart by the death of their daughter who are brought back together when they meet a troubled young woman. Why is she troubled? She's an underage stripper. Schwing! But seriously, you guys, this is serious material. The film premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival to so-so reviews, which doesn't psych me up to see it. If those art house cinefiles waiting outside in below freezing temperatures didn't fan their wool beanies with glee as the credits rolled, I probably won't enjoy it. Also, the thought of Kristen Stewart frowning in another movie makes my cerebellum ache. Also, I'm jealous I didn't get to go to Sundance. Welcome to the Rileys hits theaters November 5, 2010. Check out the trailer after the jump.
