It-girl du jour Imogen Poots is clearly on the rise— the blond bombshell just landed the female lead opposite "Gossip Girl" heartthrob Penn Badgley in the soon-to-shoot "Greetings From Tim Buckley."

The drama, written by Emma Sheanshang, David Brendel and Dan Algrant (who will also direct), follows the true story of the days leading up to Jeff Buckley's famed 1991 performance at a tribute concert for his father, who had abandoned him.

Poots will play a young woman who meets Buckley (Badgley) while working at the concert, and, shockingly totally predictably catches his eye. The two take off on a four-day journey together that will change both of their lives, Deadline reports.

Sounds like good movie fare to us.

Shooting is slated to begin as soon as next month, which means it shouldn't be too long before we see these two hotties tearing it up (and maybe taking it off?) on the silver screen.

In the meantime, however, you can catch Poots in the comedy horror flick, "Fright Night," which hits theaters August 19. Summer's feeling hotter already.
