“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,” reads the synopsis. “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 film will be led by Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter films) as the titular pop culture icon, The Office vet Rainn Wilson as Dr. Demento, Julianne Nicholson (Mare of Easttown) as Mary Yankovic, Toby Huss (Halt and Catch Fire) as Nick Yankovic, and Golden Globe nominee Evan Rachel Wood as Madonna.
