Spider-Man To Play Jeff Buckley
According to NME.com, Carney beat Twilight star Robert Pattinson and Milk star James Franco to the prestigious role of the singer, who died at just 30 years of age.
The film's executive producer is Buckley's mother Mary Guibert, who said: "We are over the moon that Reeve has agreed to take on this challenging role. He's been getting ready for this all his life. It certainly doesn't hurt that he looks so much like Jeff."
Filming is scheduled to begin in 2012. more on this story
