I'm not sure how "exclusive" this news is. Here is the text (so you don't have to wrangle with a voy link issue) from a "Variety" article from 3 weeks ago. And this is one of several stories from that week about it.

Film News Roundup: Bruce Beresford to Direct Buddy Holly Biopic ‘Clear Lake’

By Dave McNary

Oscar-nominated director Bruce Beresford is attached to the Buddy Holly biopic “Clear Lake,” with producers planning for a tentative production start in the fall.

Beresford is teaming with “Ray” producer Stuart Benjamin in developing a story about how Holly and other famous musicians of the late 1950s helped birth rock ‘n’ roll and change the trajectory of civil rights in America. Holly died in 1959 with Ritchie Valens and JP Richardson in a plane crash in Clear Lake, Iowa.

Beresford, Benjamin, screenwriter Patrick Shanahan and executive producer Rick French are working with BMG (which manages the Buddy Holly estate and controls the rights to the Holly music publishing catalog in the U.S.) and The Buddy Holly Educational Foundation.

Beresford received Oscar nominations for the “Breaker Morant” script and for directing “Tender Mercies.” He also directed “Driving Miss Daisy,” which won an Academy Award for best picture. “I found myself attracted to Clear Lake because the script tells the tragic story of Buddy Holly and his era in fascinating detail and with vivid characterizations,” said Beresford. “Needless to say, the added plus of all the wonderful music was also a major lure.”
