There's been so much speculation behind the Jeff Buckley story, we can't believe that the biopic has actually been given a greenlight!
Brad Pitt had tried for years to develop Buckley's story into a movie, but was met with resistance by Jeff's mother, Mary Guibert.
Looks like Mrs. Guibert has come to a decision though, as the movie will be made, but without Pitt.
Filmmaker Jake Scott, who directed Welcome to the Rileys, will direct the film, which starts production this fall.
So far no word on who will play Jeff, but many names have been thrown around including R-Patz, James Franco, and more.
Who do U think should play Jeff Buckley??
