Stardust (D: Range) S: Flynn, Malone, Maron -- David Bowie biopic

Film Constellation has boarded world sales on Stardust about a young David Bowie during his first visit to America in 1971; a trip that inspired the invention of his iconic alter ego Ziggy Stardust. Actor-musician Johnny Flynn (Beast) will play the young Bowie.

Jena Malone (The Hunger Games) is attached to play Bowie’s first wife, Angie, and Marc Maron (GLOW) will play his record company publicist. The project is due to feature a varied soundtrack from the era including a small number of Bowie performances.

Principal photography is slated for June 2019 with a script from Christopher Bell (The Last Czars) and Gabriel Range (I Am Slave) aboard to direct. McQueen producer Salon Pictures is producing; Christopher Figg of Piccadilly Pictures is co-financing.

Film Constellation will begin sales at EFM in Berlin next week. Additional casting is underway.

I guess that's kind of like the movie "Backbeat", but at least the Beatles were known to have played cover tunes in their early days. And of course that movie sucked.

Yeah, lack of original music would be a tough obstacle to overcome.

This is the guy who directed that "Death of the President" movie from 2006 that depicted Bush being assassinated. Sounds like he's just looking for another 15 minutes.
