New Images From 'Greetings From Tim Buckley' Starring Penn Badgley & Imogen Poots

There is really only one big question to be answered by the upcoming "Greetings From Tim Buckley": Can "Gossip Girl" star Penn Badgley adequately step into the shoes of the late Jeff Buckley? With the film headed to the fall festival circuit, we'll soon find out (though some early live footage does give an indication of the actor's pipes), but until then we'll only have some images to work with. Fortunately, a whole new batch has arrived.

Greetings From Tim Buckley

There is really only one big question to be answered by the upcoming "Greetings From Tim Buckley": Can "Gossip Girl" star Penn Badgley adequately step into the shoes of the late Jeff Buckley? With the film headed to the fall festival circuit, we'll soon find out (though some early live footage does give an indication of the actor's pipes), but until then we'll only have some images to work with. Fortunately, a whole new batch has arrived.

The official Facebook page, website and Twitter for the film has been launched to help get the word out in the run up to its appearance in Toronto. Written by Dan Algrant, Emma Sheanshang and David Brendel—with Algrant directing—Imogen Poots co-stars in the film that follows the story of the days leading up to Jeff Buckley’s breakthrough 1991 performance at his father’s tribute concert in St. Ann’s Church. Along the way, he falls into a romance with a young woman working at the concert, and works through the feelings he has towards his father who abandoned him. And in an additional bit of news, Variety revealed earlier this month that English singer/songwriter Kate Nash also appears in the film (you can see her in one of the images below if you look closely).

"Greetings From Tim Buckley" will have its World Premiere at TIFF where it will also be seeking distribution. Check out the images below and on the next page.
