Who WOULDN'T say yes to Brad Pitt?

Last we heard about the upcoming Jeff Buckley biopic, Penn Badgley had landed the title role in the film.

Now, the film's producers have opened up about the origins of the biopic, and how Buckley's mom originally wanted Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston to take on the project.

Buckley's mom chose Brad and Jennifer's prod co Plan B to take on the project because "[Brad] was really kind to her and she appreciated that he wanted to make a movie inspired by Jeff's life." How sweet.

Here's more on why Buckley's mom wanted Plan B for the project:

"She was impressed that Brad took interest in her son's life and wanted to make a film about him for the right reasons and in the right way."

And here's how Jennifer influenced the project from the way beginning:

"Jennifer Aniston actually introduced Brad to Jeff's music. She has always been a fan of his. But when they broke up, the project never came to fruition because it was part of their joint Plan B production company."

Too bad things didn't work out with Brad and Jen the film. We're very glad to see it's still happening elsewhere though!

    Who cares about these two anymore sure she is over Brad, in other relevant news Chelsea Lately is having problems with Serbia after leaving racial comments on her show. She should go in hiding as for once they have a right in going after her.

    When will this "READ THE REST OF THE ENTRY" STOP???

    there is no reason to keep bringing these two up. she's obviously moved on, and they have nothing to do with the current project so why even rake up the past? everyone needs to get over it

    I thought the Jeff Buckley biopic Penn Badgley was cast in is not the one Jeff's mom is involved with. She is working with Jake Scott on a different movie - the "official" one. Apparently there are going to be 2 Buckley movies coming out within the next year or so. Not sure why all of a sudden there is a collective Jeff Buckley obsession, but I'm all for it! I'm a huge fan of his music. God, I miss the 90's.
