Renée Zellweger to play Judy Garland in ‘Judy’ Biopic

A striking first image has been released from “Judy” that shows Renée Zellweger playing show business legend Judy Garland in a biopic. The movie is set in the late 1960s as Garland arrives in the British capital for a run of sell-out concerts. The film delves into Garland’s behind-the-scenes battles with management, her relationships with musicians and fans, and the unfolding family drama that provided the backdrop to the London performances. She died in London in April 1969. As well as Zellweger in the lead role, the cast includes Jessie Buckley (“War and Peace”), Finn Wittrock (“American Horror Story”) and Michael Gambon (“Harry Potter”). Renée Zellweger will be playing Judy Garland in a long awaited biopic of the star. There will include a number of popular performances as well as hits like her song, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”
