“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 crushes and famously depraved lifestyle,” reads the synopsis. “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story takes audiences on a truly incredible journey through Yankovic’s life and career, from gifted prodigy to the greatest musical legend of all time.”
The film will be directed by Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter film) as the titular pop culture icon, The office veterinarian Rainn Wilson as Dr. Demento, Julianne Nicholson (Jumping off Eastown) as Mary Yankovic, Toby Huss (Stop and Catch Fire) as Nick Yankovic, and Golden Globe nominee Evan Rachel Wood as Madonna.
Weird: The Al Yankovic Story is directed and executive produced by Eric Appel from a script he co-wrote with Yankovic. It is produced by Funny Or Die and Tango. Producers are Yankovic, Mike Farah, Joe Farrell and Whitney Hodack for Funny Or Die along with Tim Headington, Lia Buman and Max Silva for Tango. Funny Or Die’s Henry Muñoz III and Tango’s Neil Shah are also set to executive produce.
This marks the second collaboration between Yankovic and Appel, as they previously produced a Funny or Die movie trailer for Yankovic’s biopic eight years ago. The trailer featured Aaron Paul, Olivia Wilde, Gary Cole, Mary Steenburgen and Patton Oswalt.
