David Bowie’s son, Duncan Jones, criticized the biopic, saying it wasn’t approved by the family.
The film is slated to start filming in June with musician/actor Johnny Flynn playing the late singer. Jena Malone is said to be playing Angie Bowie, his first wife, while Marc Maron is playing his publicist.
Jones said the film was neither approved nor supported by his family and that it would be feature any Bowie music. “Pretty certain nobody has been granted music rights for ANY biopic … I would know,” he said in a tweet. “I’m not saying this movie is not happening. I honestly wouldn’t know. I’m saying that as it stands, this movie won’t have any of Dad’s music in it, and I can’t imagine that changing.”
