British star Daniel Radcliffe is set to play American musician “Weird Al” Yankovic in a biopic.
Yankovic made a prolific career for himself pumping out delectable song parodies, from “Eat It,” to “White and Nerdy”.
Roku announced Tuesday an all-new feature movie is in development about the Grammy-award winning polka songsmith, titled “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story” , to be made available exclusively on The Roku Channel.
The biopic will explore 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” is written by Yankovic and Appel.
Appel serves as director and an executive producer.
The movie is produced by Funny Or Die and Tango.
Yankovic also produces alongside Mike Farah, Joe Farrell, and Whitney Hodack for Funny Or Die, and Tim Headington, Lia Buman, and Max Silva for Tango.
Funny Or Die’s Henry Muñoz III and Tango’s Neil Shah will also serve as executive producers.
Production begins in Los Angeles next month.
A release date for the film is yet to be announced.
