First Look at Renée Zellweger as Judy Garland in New Biopic

Pathé UK, BBC Films, Ingenious Media and Calamity Films have revealed the first official photo from ‘Judy,’ the upcoming biopic which stars Renée Zellweger as show business legend Judy Garland and we think you’ll agree that the resemblance is uncanny. Check out the image below.

The movie opens in London in the winter of 1968 as Garland arrives for a five-week run of sell-out concerts. ‘Judy’ movie will also recount the icon’s battles with management, relationships with musicians and fans.

As the concerts get underway the star of stage and screen is 47 and 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.

Tony nominee and two times Olivier winner Rupert Goold (‘King Charles III’) is behind the camera, directing from a script by Tom Edge (‘The Crown’). Cast members joining Zellweger include Jessie Buckley (‘War and Peace’), Finn Wittrock (‘American Horror Story’) and Sir Michael Gambon (‘Harry Potter’).

Principal photography is underway in London.
