Patricia Arquette To Play Buckley’s Mother

Patricia Arquette has agreed to play Jeff Buckley’s mother, Mary Guibert, in a cameo in Jake Scott’s untitled biopic of the late musician reports Variety.

Arquette will be seen in both flashback and present day as Guibert, who convinces her son to attend his father’s 1991 tribute concert “Greetings From Tim Buckley,” which is widely recognized as Jeff Buckley’s first real public appearance in New York.

Reeve Carney stars in the role and shooting kicks off this Spring in New York City and Memphis. This is not to be confused with the rival project “Greetings From Tim Buckley” starring Penn Badgley as Jeff.
