Renee Zellweger Has Transformed Into Judy Garland For Biopic

The film is called “Judy” and in production in London now, and star Renee Zellweger looks a lot like the late iconic singer Judy Garland.

Photos of Zellweger surfaced on Monday, showing the eerie transformation into the late Hollywood star right down to the short black hair and red lipstick. The Huff Post revealed that the biopic takes place in winter of 1968; Garland would be gone only a year later at age 47 from an accidental drug overdose.

The movie even has a place on social media with its own Twitter page. Fans can learn all about the flick, see old photos of a performing Judy Garland 30 years after filming the “Wizard of Oz” and watch how Renee Zellwegger assumes the role.

On Monday afternoon, Zellweger was snapped on the set in a fluffy navy robe and black furry slippers. The actress is known for her blonde tresses, but it appears like she had it cut and dyed for the role. The biopic focuses on Judy Garland’s last concerts in London, her struggles with addiction, financial instability, a long career that began in her teens and her fifth marriage to Mickey Deans.

Deans found the body of Judy Garland in the bathroom of their rented home in Chelsea, London on June 22, 1969.

Renee Zellweger is playing the role at age 48. It is unclear if she will sing in the movie or if Garland’s voice will be brought to life in the biopic.
