Oscar Renée Zellweger proved that she was adept at musicals with 2002’s Chicago, and now she’s playing showbiz icon Judy Garland in the upcoming feature Judy.
Directed by Rupert Goold and penned by Tom Edge, the feature centers on Garland’s five week run at The Talk of the Town in 1968. Finn Witrock (American Horror Story) co-stars as Mickey Deans, Garland’s fifth husband, with Bella Ramsay (Game of Thrones) and Gemma Leah Devereux (Casualty) playing Garland’s daughters Lorna Luft and Liza Minnelli.
Can Zellweger be as believable as Judy Davis (Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows) as Garland? Check out the teaser trailer, which features Garland’s signature tune “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” and tell us what you think!
Judy hits theaters September 27.
