Jeff Buckley's Life Set to be Made a Biopic

June 28, 2006 09:42:55 GMT

It's now Jeff Buckley's turn to get his life made into a film biopic. Writer-director Brian Jun has given his agreement to take the double jobs to bring out the late musician's life to the big screen while the production will be handled by Buckley's mother, Mary Guibert, and Michelle Sy, who previously has seated as the executive producer in "Finding Neverland."
"As a filmmaker on the rise, I think he is actually experiencing a lot of the things that Jeff would have been experiencing at that point in his life," so Sy commented upon her decision to assign Jun the task.

The attempt to make a biopic about Buckley actually has been developed by writer-producer Train Houston after acquiring the rights to David Browne's book titled "Dream Brother: The Lives & Music of Jeff & Tim Buckley" last year. This finally prompted Guibert, who controls the rights to her son's song, to fix her mind in taking an active role to make a movie about his life. "Over the years, the number of offers were unceasing, and I had resisted for so many reasons, one being that Hollywood, traditionally, did a lousy job of realistically portraying the life of people like Jeff," she revealed. "But the possibility that it could happen without my participation set me back to re-examine why I wasn't doing it."
