Robert Pattinson discusses Jeff Buckley biopic with the late musicians mom
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
I’m sure you all remember back in January when Robert Pattinson was gunning to portray the late musician Jeff Buckley in a biopic. It was a bit of a joke around the internet for awhile, but Mr. Pattinson was serious. So serious he actually met up with Buckley’s mother, Mary Guibert, to discuss the project. Bob Patty had nothing but nice things to say about Mr. Buckley and his mother, but he definitely made it clear that a decision is not final. He stated, “I don’t know. It’s really not up to me. I love Jeff’s music. He was amazing.” Pattinson said he’s waiting on a script to see how the musician will be portrayed and he did mention that he wouldn’t be singing himself or playing the guitar, sorry ladies. The untitled biopic will be directed by Jake Scott and will probably start shooting sometime this fall.
Keep an eye out for casting news regarding this film. It would be shocking if no other young stars started circling this role, so I’m sure we won’t be hearing the end of this for at least a month or two.
