The Judy biopic began filming today in London, and the makers shared the first image of Zellweger in the role. Take a look:

The film is set in 1968 as Garland prepares for a series of sold out concerts in London, and delves into her battles with management as well as her troubled relationships with fans and family.

Garland passed away in 1969 from an accidental overdose of barbiturates, and her health was deteriorating in the later years of her life. It’s not clear if those aspects of her life will be covered in the movie.

This could be a major role for Zellweger, who hasn’t appeared in many movies in recent years. Could she add another Academy Award to her résumé with this pic?
