The script is signed by the author of The Crown.
Renee Zellweger, who has shown her singing and dancing skills in Chicago, has been chosen to play Judy Garland in the movie Judy, reports Variety. Behind the camera, we find the British director Rupert Goold, while the scenario is signed by Tom Edge to whom we owe the hit series The Crown.
The biopic Judy is interested in the last part of the life of the actress. When in 1968 she performs in London for a series of concerts. At 47, she is already worn out. Tired of being exposed at a very young age to fame and with a history of addiction. She must go on stage, when she would rather take care of her children.
Judy Garland was a legend in American cinema and music hall. Awarded the 18-year-old Oscar for best actress for her role as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, the actress died in 1969 after ingesting barbiturates. She was the mother of Liza Minelli.
The filming of Judy , in which the production ensures that there will be the greatest successes of Judy Garland, will begin in February in London.
