(And yes, I'm aware "Hallelujah" is a Leonard Cohen song. But Jeff Buckley's rendition of it is probably the most well known version.)
Deadline is reporting that Jake Scott, son of Ridley Scott and director of WELCOME TO THE RILEYS and multiple music videos featuring the likes of R.E.M., Radiohead, and Smashing Pumpkins, will direct a film based on the life of Jeff Buckley. Buckley was the son of 1960s singer Tim Buckley. Buckley's album GRACE is considered one of the most influential albums of the 1990s, but unfortunately Buckley didn't live to see its success, having drowned in Wolf River Harbor in Tennessee in 1997.
His music has been a major influence on many bands since then. GRACE is still a hell of an album. Likely everyone will link to a video of "Hallelujah" but I'd rather link to one of his original songs:
