This has been doing the rounds on Facebook:

<a rel=nofollow target=_blank href="https://variety.com/2018/film/news/buddy-holly-movie-clear-lake-development-1202869074/#article-comments">https://variety.com/2018/film/news/buddy-holly-movie-clear-lake-development-1202869074/#article-comments</a>

It's being made in partnership with MEH, so I have my reservations about how factual it will be. It certainly raises a few questions, for example:

- Is the plotline an adaption of JI's "Not Fade Away" script, which was shelved.

- What exactly does Clear Lake have to do with the film if it presumably depicts the 1958 'Biggest Show of Stars' tour, which to my knowledge went nowhere near Clear Lake?

- Will this be another 'Buddy Holly Story', rather than an accurate depiction of what happened on the tour?

- Will Buddy Holly be accurately portrayed as he was, rather than some goody-to-shoes type character?

I must be getting too cynical in my (not so) old age...
