RALEIGH, North Carolina – A new movie on the life and death of Buddy Holly is in the planning stages.
Titled “Clear Lake,” the $12 million film is scheduled to begin production in February 2019. Rick French of the public relations firm French/West/Vaughn and Patrick Shanahan, founder and president of Denim Buffalo Films, are teaming up to create a motion picture that will follow Holly and fellow Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Clarence Collins, founder of Little Anthony and the Imperials, as they tour during what they call the “racially charged days of 1958” as members of the “Biggest Show of Stars Tour.”
According to an online statement, casting on the film is due to begin this fall.
Holly died in a 1959 plane crash outside Clear Lake.
