Weinsteins planning Judy Garland biopic

Her turbulent life story will hit the screen

The Weinstein Company has grabbed the film rights to Gerald Clarke’s Judy Garland biography Get Happy.

Despite her seemingly cheery appearance on stage and screen, Garland’s life was a rollercoaster of addiction, self-esteem issues and manipulation by those around her.

And though she won just about every award in the entertainment arena (including an Oscar, a Golden Globe, Grammys and Tonys), Garland struggled with her looks and attempted suicide several times.

She also suffered through five marriages and financial trouble, and died, aged 47, in 1969.
