Renee Zellweger has been cast as Judy Garland in the coming Pathe and Calamity Films project Judy.
The film will be directed by Rupert Goold with a script by Tom Edge. Filming is slated to begin February 2018.
The film will focus the winter of 1968 when Garland arrives in London to perform a five-week run of sell-out concerts at The Talk of the Town. As the concerts get underway, Garland is exhausted, fragile, and wanting to be at home with her kids, casting into doubt whether the shows, at the Talk of the Town nightclub, can go on.
According to producers, the film will feature some of Garland’s best known songs.
Stay tuned, kids.
