Renee Zellweger readies to film in London

Judy Garland Filming begins in London in a couple of months on Judy, a biopic of stage and screen legend Judy Garland.

Renee Zellweger will star as the legendary performer with the film centring on Garland’s final concerts at the Talk of the Town in London in 1968 – a period in which the star was exhausted, fragile and full of self-doubt.

Garland died in London the following year.

Well-known theatre director Rupert Goold directs from a screenplay by Tom Edge whose credits include The Crown, Strike and Lovesick.

Judy is from Pathe and Calamity Films, with Calamity’s David Livingstone producing.
