At one point this summer, the officially-sanctioned Jeff Buckley biopic "Mystery White Boy" was supposed to be shooting with "Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark" star Reeve Carney in the lead and Jake Scott directing, with Gemma Arterton, Olivia Thirlby, Harry Treadaway and Patricia Arquette all lining up for roles. And then...nothing. Well, it appears that not only has a new director come on board, but the project may also be looking for a new lead.

Ah, the Super Bowl. Where nobody cares who really won, but instead the post-game chatter is about M.I.A.'s middle finger (snore), Madonna's halftime show (double snore) and of course, the ads. In case you missed it, all the movie spots are rounded up right here, but guess what? There's even more. /Film has done a good job collection the numerous spots from some filmmakers you might have heard of, who earned some extra coin taking on these directing gigs. So let's take a look.

In addition to the long line of competing tent pole films (from “Dante’s Peak” vs. “Volcano” up to “Mirror, Mirror” vs. “Snow White and the Huntsman”), there has in recent years been a growing number of biopics going head-to-head. First there was “Capote” vs. “Infamous,” as well as the upcoming “Lovelace” vs. “Inferno,” and next a pair of Jeff Buckley films: Daniel Algrant's

Befriended Buckley's Mother, Mary Guibert, For Years Before Being Asked To Audition In terms of physical resemblance and musical abilities, the casting of "Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark" star Reeve Carney for Jake Scott's upcoming biopic of the late singer-songwriter is one that we're open to. The young actor/musican now faces the challenge of tackling the role of the much-adored Buckley -- told through the scope of David Browne‘s book “Dream Brother: The Lives and Music of Jeff and Tim Buckley" -- with his task made only more difficult now with the young star revealing he's also recording Buckley's material for the film.

Even though "‘Greetings From Tim Buckley" starts shooing this month with Penn Badgley and Imogen Poots leading the film, there are some differences between this project and previously announced Jake Scott directed Jeff Buckley biopic. 'Greetings' will take place entirely before Jeff became a star, centering around his 1991 performance at a tribute concert for this father (and thus, the rights for his music aren't needed, nor have they been granted). Scott's untitled film, on the other hand, is presenting a much more thorough look at the life of the singer, using David Browne‘s book “Dream Brother: The Lives and Music of Jeff and Tim Buckley" as a resource, with full and exclusive access to the Buckley archives. So even though they are competing films, the scope and focus between the two is quite different, and while word on Scott's film had been quiet for a while, he's now found his Jeff Buckley.

PUNCH. The remains of a car burn in the darkness. Whomever was present for such a disaster no longer breathes air. PUNCH. A black screen, the title “Welcome To The Rileys” proudly displayed at the center of the screen. PUNCH. The visage of a burly man smoking a cigarette comes into frame. While the location is a suburban backyard, the darkness seems to swallow this man’s face, who entirely has the camera’s attention. In the darkness, smoke pouring out of his mouth, he looks like a caged beast, frustrated by being marginalized in captivity.
