Tribeca Film and Focus World have teamed to acquire U.S. rights to "Greetings from Tim Buckley," Dan Algrant's Tim and Jeff Buckley biopic that world premiered in Toronto last September and stars "Gossip Girl" star Penn Badgley as Jeff. The film also stars Imogen Poots and newcomer Ben Rosenfield.
"'Greetings from Tim Buckley' is a uniquely independent vision—a musical, a love story, and an examination of a father-son relationship that never was," said Geoff Gilmore, Chief Creative Officer of Tribeca Enterprises. "With an especially affecting performance by Penn Badgley, and directed by the very talented Dan Algrant, Buckley is an example of storytelling of the highest caliber and quality. We are especially excited to be partnering with Focus to release this film across all platforms."
Tribeca Film and Focus World plan to release the film in 2013 in theaters and on demand.
