Robert Pattinson keen to star in upcoming Jeff Buckley biopic


27 January 2011

Fans of the gorgeous Robert Pattinson know only too well that his many talents lay in not only playing the undead, but he has not so hidden musical talents as well. He famously played and sung a few tracks on the Twilight soundtrack, and YouTube is littered with his darkly lit acoustic performances. It's no wonder then that Pattinson has been linked with an upcoming Jeff Buckley biopic that is currently in the works. Apparently he is "Obsessed with the project and doing everything he can to land the part." according to the Daily Express and has made no secret of his desire.

Jeff Buckley was a star in the making, a talented singer songwriter and son of the legendary Tim Buckley who had only one album under his belt and another on the way when he tragically drowned in 1997. He has however amassed a huge cult following since his death and he had the well known hit in 2008 with Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah.

Whether Pattinson will get the part remains to be seen, but Buckley's mother Mary Guibert is also involved as an executive producer, and says, "Robert is a fine young actor. I’m flattered he’s been linked to this project. When the time comes we’ll give everybody an opportunity to be seen and heard.

Pattinson faces some stiff competition from James Marsden, Ryan Gosling, James Franco, however at least Robert is already established as a multi talented actor and at least knows how to hold a guitar. Also, producers must be excited at the potential box office draw that having R Patz as Buckley would make. Watch this space.
