With feuding Snow White films currently jockeying to embarrass one another at the box office, we nearly forgot about the rival Jeff Buckley biopics in development. Greetings From Tim Buckley seems to be the first out of the gate while Jake Scott’s Buckley biopic is hanging around and playing Nintendo (that’s no way to go through life, Jeff Buckley biopic!). Dan Algrant’s Tim Buckley has already cast Penn Badgley for its lead and now has leaped forward again with the casting of Imogen Poots.

The up-and-coming Fright Night star will play a young woman who meets Buckley as he prepares to perform a tribute to his famous father at the St. Ann’s Church. The two embark on a four day journey that changes both of their lives and gives the singer a better understanding of his absent father. I’m assuming the lesson he learns is that hitting the road with random, hot, blond 22-year olds is awesome. (Deadline)

Penn Badgley will be playing seminal singer/songwriter Jeff Buckley in Greetings from Tim Buckley, which is not this Jeff Buckley biopic that had been gestating for the past six months or so. Greetings is a previously unreported project that will look at Buckley’s life through only a window of a few days leading up to his historic 1991 concert in St. Anne’s Church. It will be directed by Dan Algrant (People I Know, Naked in New York)

Considering there isn’t enough demand to warrant two Buckley pics, what does this mean for the more older, more familiar project with Jake Scott attached to direct? Well, casting Penn Badgley is hardly a “checkmate” in the showdown between these two films, but it would appear that Greetings from Tim Buckley is off to an early lead.

Badgley’s “musical chops” were a factor in his getting the part, so…I guess he’ll be singing some Jeff Buckley songs in the film.

How weird would it be if Penn Badgley’s renditions were even more soulful and haunting than Buckley’s originals?
