Daniel Radcliffe stars in first teaser for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story

The first teaser trailer for Al Yankovic biopic Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, starring Daniel Radcliffe, has made its debut online – take a look below…

 

 

The film’s subject has long been a beloved – if odd – presence in the music industry, building a career on parodies of popular hits and, as the new teaser is keen to point out, winning no fewer than five Grammys for his efforts.

Daniel Radcliffe stars as Yankovich alongside a cast that includes Rainn Wilson, Julianne Nicholson and Toby Huss, as well as Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood in the role of Madonna.

Eric Appel directs, working from a screenplay he developed alongside Al Yankovic himself, which offers a glimpse at the stories behind hits like ‘Eat It’ and ‘Like a Surgeon’, as well as Yankovich’s famously debauched lifestyle.

Sadly there’s no confirmed release date as yet and the film is still in production, although there has been speculation that it could be the end of the year or even early 2023 until we get to see the film in full. More news on that as we get it…
