Stardust, an upcoming film about David Bowie, has cast its leading man. The role will be played by actor-musician Johnny Flynn, and he will be accompanied by Marc Maron—portraying Bowie’s publicist—and Jena Malone (The Hunger Games) as Bowie’s first wife, Angie.
The film will explore Bowie’s first trip to America in the early ’70s and the genesis of his Ziggy Stardust persona.
According to reports, the soundtrack will include various Bowie performances. The film will be written by Christopher Bell (The Last Czars) and directed by Gabriel Range (I Am Slave).
