Attention everyone! Renee is Judy
Well, I have to admit… I never saw it coming. The casting of Judy I mean. Yes. You’ve probably seen the photo by now. Renée Zellweger is playing Judy Garland in the latest biopic about the Hollywood screen legend and the first official photo is already on line.
You can plainly see Renee holding a mike, wearing a floral number and singing on stage just like Judy did in the late stage of her career. Tragically she died just one year later after the concerts.
Directed by Rupert Goold, Judy will be set in the late 1960s when Garland arrives in the British capital for a five-week run of sell-out concerts. Rufus Sewell, Michael Gambon, Finn Wittrock, Bella Ramsey will be appearing in supporting roles, while the film is scheduled to be released by Pathe this year.
Garland a child performer and child actress, grew up to be one of the most celebrated and beloved artists of her time. Her career success however, was often eclipsed by her addiction to drugs and alcohol, which led to her early death at the age of just 47.
