Co-produced by the mother of the legendary author of Grace, Everybody Here Wants You rwill trace the short and tragic life of the Californian, who went from being a “son of” to that of an international star.
Orian Williams, producer of Control, (the black and white biopic on the tragic fate of Ian Curtis), goes behind the camera and tackles another rock comet: Jeff Buckley. The American singer, who died at the age of 30, will be played on screen by Reeve Carney (the Dorian Gray of Penny Dreadful and future cast member of Gucci, next Ridley Scott), the magazine reports Variety . No release date has been announced for the feature film, only a name, Everybody Here Wants You.
“This will be the only official adaptation of Jeff’s story that I can promise his fans will be true to him and his legacy. Fortunately, my determination to bring together all the right participants, however long it takes, is about to come to fruition in the best possible way.Said Mary Guibert, the mother of the late artist and co-producer on the project.
Son of Tim Buckley for some, gifted singer for others, Jeff Buckley still benefits today from a particular aura on the public and contemporary musicians. From Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin guitarist, who readily quotes Grace among her favorite albums of the 1990s, to Miley Cyrus and her cover of Lilac wine, through the hundreds of telecrochets candidates bawling over his resumption ofHallelujah, the Californian will have managed to mark several generations in a single album. A success unfortunately short-lived for him, found drowned on June 4, 1997 near Memphis.
