Johnny Flynn to Portray David Bowie in 'Stardust' Biopic

Stardust has found its David Bowie!

It’s been announced that Johnny Flynn has signed on to play the iconic entertainer in the upcoming biopic.

The 35-year-old actor/musician joins Jena Malone and Marc Maron in the film that tracks Bowie’s rise as a superstar – starting with his first trip to American in 1971, which inspired the creation of his iconic alter ego Ziggy Stardust. Bowie sadly passed away in January 2016 after a battle with cancer.

Emmy winner Gabriel Range will be directing the film with a script by Christopher Bell.

Johnny is best known for his roles on Netflix’s Lovesick and NatGeo’s Genius.

Production for Stardust is set to begin in June 2019.
