First Look: Renee Zellweger as Screen Icon Judy Garland in 'Judy'

Pathé Reveals First Look at Renée Zellweger as Judy Garland

Renée Zellweger has gone through a complete transformation for the upcoming biopic about Judy Garland! The story follows Garland, 30 years after she shot to global stardom in THE WIZARD OF OZ, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown.

But along with the glamour and fun she also has to deal with management, fellow musicians and fans, all while keeping a smile on her face as she is gripped with a fierce desire to return home to the U.S. and be with her children.

Starring alongside Renée will be Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock and Michael Gambon.

It will also document her fallouts with her management and her romance with soon-to-be fifth husband Mickey Deans, as she performs her sell-out run of live shows.

The fact that it's going to be helping someone compete with Amazon is just an added bonus that benefits both sides of the deal. Target, which has been live for 6 months, says its Google Express shopping baskets increased almost 20 percent, on average.

As the concerts get underway the star of stage and screen is 47 and exhausted, fragile, and wanting to be at home with her kids, casting into doubt whether the shows, at the Talk of the Town nightclub, can go on.

Produced by BBC Films and Pathé, Judy also stars Bella Ramsey (Game Of Thrones) as daughter Lorna Luft and Gemma-Leah Devereux as a young Liza Minnelli.

Jessie Buckley (War And Peace), Finn Wittrock (American Horror Story), Michael Gambon (Harry Potter), Rufus Sewell (The Man in the High Castle), and Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones) will costar in the BBC-backed project, directed by two-time Olivier victor Rupert Goold (King Charles III). BAFTA victor David Livingstone ("Pride") produces for Calamity Films.

The film will feature some of her best-known songs, including the timeless classic "Over the Rainbow", JUDY celebrates the voice, the capacity for love and the sheer pizzazz of "the world's greatest entertainer".
