You guys know how much I loooooove biopics. So I am extremely excited to announce the upcoming movie about legendary entertainer, singer and Wizard of Oz actress Judy Garland.
The film is titled JUDY and stars the “extremely talented” Renée Zellweger as the Hollywood icon. The film synopsis reads as follows:
Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Even her dreams of love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.
JUDY also stars Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock, Rufus Sewell, and Michael Gambon. It directed by Rupert Goold with the screenplay by Tom Edge.
JUDY arrives in theaters on September 27.
