Robert Pattinson Approaches Producer to Land Role in Jeff Buckley Biopic

Robert Pattinson

Interested to play in Jeff Buckley biopic, Robert Pattinson has to impress the producer with his music talent first if he wants a role in the planned movie.

"Twilight" hunk Robert Pattinson is hoping to showcase his musical skills on the big screen in a planned biopic about cult singer Jeff Buckley. The British actor has approached producers about depicting the late "Hallelujah" hitmaker once he completes the last two movies in the vampire franchise.

But Pattinson, who sang on the "Twilight" soundtrack, will have to impress with his musicianship if he wants to land the coveted role. Producer Michelle Sy says, "I've met actors who are keen on the part and Robert was one... The actor must be able to play music and sing, or at least make it believable he can do that."

The 24 year old has already received a vote of confidence from Mary Guibert, Buckley's mother, amid reports actors including James Franco and James Marsden are also vying for the part. Guibert says, "Robert is a fine young actor. I'm flattered he's been linked to the project. When the times comes we'll give everybody an opportunity to be seen and heard."

Buckley drowned in Memphis, Tennessee in 1997 when he was just 30 years old.

    Okay they already know from Twilight he can play the piano, they know he can plays the guitar and they know from the Twilight soundtrack that he can sing and play the guitar at the same time... he's beautiful and a great actor. What more do they need? He's perfect for the role. I love the projects he's been doing and trying to do. He's so smart to be more diverse.
