David Bowie’s biopic ‘Stardust’ is going to be released in the Uk before the end of the year which is been confirmed by the Film distributors.
The screening took place in gala, london. where social distancing had been followed and the film’s director Gabriel Range was also present on that night screening.
The film will be an origin movie which stars actor and musician Johnny Flynn. It will follow David Bowie travelling across the USA in 1971, shortly before he saw widespread acclaim by reinventing himself as Ziggy Stardust.
Rights of the film have been acquired by British distributor Vertigo Releasing. It is set for release in the US on November 25 before coming to the UK.
In October, the film’s trailer was finally released and provoked a mixed response from Bowie’s fans, many of whom said that Flynn could not “look less like” the “Starman” singer.
“Nope. Just no,” wrote one. “You can’t have an accent that bad, a film that looks like an American soap opera and you certainly can’t have a Bowie film without his music. Probs shouldn’t have bothered guys. ”
While others commented, ‘who is the actor who looks the least like david bowie?’ and cast him for the role,” one user wrote.
Bowie’s family have also previously distanced themselves entirely from the upcoming project. His son and Moon director Duncan Jones confirmed that Stardust is unauthorised and won’t feature any of his father’s music in it.
