Reeve Carney: Jeff Buckley in Biopic!

Reeve Carney has landed the coveted role of Jeff Buckley in an upcoming biopic, can confirm.

The 28-year-old Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark actor will play the late singer, who died tragically at the age of 30 in a drowning accident.

Production will begin in New York and Memphis in November. The biopic’s filmmakers own the exclusive rights to Jeff‘s music and personal archives…and Jeff’s mother, Mary Guibert, has given her full support to the project.

FYI: There are multiple projects about Jeff in the works – Penn Badgley will play him in another film.

    So happy they’re making a film about Jeff Buckley’s life, he was such a talented musician, a great loss.

    Wow. This guys looks amazingly like Jeff, At least in this shot. I just am opposed to a movie being done at all. Jeff was a shy, private artist who never sought the spotlight. In fact it made him shrink. I don’t think he’d want his life put out there. I regret his mother has agreed. I guess she knew it was inevitable.

    I love Robert Pattinson but i’m glad he didnt get a role for this movie. I wanted it to be an unknown actor. I’m sooo looking forward to this movie.
