Musician and actor Flynn stars as the iconic “Space Oddity” singer at the age of 24, when he embarked on his first road trip to America in 1971 with his struggling publicist Ron Oberman, played by Marc Maron (Glow).
“Stardust offers a glimpse behind the curtain of the moments that inspired the creation of Bowie’s first and most memorable alter ego Ziggy Stardust,” reads the film’s official synopsis, “capturing the turning point that cemented his career as one of the world’s greatest cultural icons.”
Emmy award-winning British filmmaker Gabriel Range (I Am Slave) directs the project written by Christopher Bell (The Last Czars).
