Musician and actor Johnny Flynn will play David Bowie in the upcoming feature Stardust, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Jena Malone and Marc Maron will also star in the movie that tracks the rise of the superstar, starting with his first visit to America in 1971 — a trip that inspired the invention of his iconic alter ego, Ziggy Stardust. 

David Bowie’s gender-bending performances and cultural fluidity inspired a generation of gay, lesbian and transgender people.

Principal photography is set for June 2019.
