  • Judy Garland biopic

    By | February 4, 2009


    The Weinstein Company has acquired the rights to Gerald Clarke’s biography – Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland. The book covers all 47 years of Garland’s successful and yet tragic life. Best known for her roles in the Wizard of Oz, Meet Me in St. Louis, A Star is Born & Judgment at Nuremberg, she was staring in Hollywood films by the early age of 7.

    By the still ripe age of 25, she had nervous break downs, fought mental illness, and suffered from addiction up until her bitter end at 47. I for one hope that they spend as much time focusing on her glory years as the project develops into film.

    Who would be a good casting choice to play Judy Garland…and will there be any need to cast a Lollypop Guild? Add your thoughts below!

      You will HAVE to get an unknown, in my opinion. Anyone with a familiar face is not going to be believable or intruiging. You need a fresh, new, dramatic actress for sure.
