Beast co-star Johnny Flynn is to headline a biopic of David Bowie. Details here.
The story of David Bowie is being brought to the big screen at last, at least in part. Stardust will tell the story of a young Bowie, with Johnny Flynn (Beast) cast in the lead role.
Opposite Flynn in the movie will be Jena Malone, and Marc Maron has also signed up for the movie, to play Bowie’s publicist.

Our best guess would be that a 2020 release is on the cards. We’ll keep you posted…
