Renee Zellweger to Play Judy Garland in New Biopic
By Jackie Willis
Renee Zellweger has landed the role of a Hollywood icon.
The 48-year-old actress will portray Judy Garland in the upcoming biopic Judy, Variety reports.
The movie will center around the Wizard of Oz star's final concerts in London that took place at the Talk of the Town nightclub in 1969 when she was 47 and was "exhausted, fragile, and wanting to be at home with her kids," according to the trade publication. Garland died that same year.
Zellweger certainly has the grace to play one of Hollywood's most beloved actresses. Earlier this month, she turned heads in a stunning buttercup yellow Carolina Herrera dress at the Same Kind of Different as Me premiere in Los Angeles, California.
