Musician and actor Johnny Flynn (“Lovesick,” “Genius”) will play David Bowie in the upcoming biopic “Stardust” for Salon Pictures.
The project tracks the rise of the superstar, starting with his first visit to America in 1971 which inspired the invention of his iconic alter ego Ziggy Stardust.
Jena Malone and Marc Maron will also star. Emmy winner Gabriel Range will direct from a script by Christopher Bell (“The Last Czars”) and filming begins in June. Range, Paul Van Carter and Nick Taussig will produce.
