Roku has released the first trailer for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, which stars Daniel Radcliffe as Weird Al, and he’s freakin’ awesome in the role! I’ve been really excited to see what he would do to bring this character to life, and he’s so damn entertaining!
Radcliffe had a blast making the movie and he previously said that it was one of the most fun jobs he’s ever had, and you can totally see him having fun in the role! I’m looking forward to watching this movie! It looks great!
The biopic holds nothing back, “exploring every facet of Yankovic’s life, from his meteoric rise to fame with early hits like ‘Eat It’ and ‘Like a Surgeon’ to his torrid celebrity love affairs and famously depraved lifestyle. Weird: The Al Yankovic Story takes audiences on a truly unbelievable journey through Yankovic’s life and career, from gifted child prodigy to the greatest musical legend of all time.”
The project is being produced by Funny Or Die and Tango. Yankovic is involved with the project as well, and he co-wrote the script with Eric Appel, who directed it. Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld, Phoenix Rising) also stars in the film and is taking on the role of Madonna.
