“Name one creative genius that doesn’t have a checkered past involving alcohol and drugs.” Time for the story of the musical genius whose story you, uh, didn’t know you needed to hear. The Roku Channel has debuted the full-length official trailer for the film Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, made by Funny Or Die and comedy filmmaker Eric Appel, in collaboration with the real Weird Al. This looks like Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story crossed with I, Tonya and spliced with Daniel Radcliffe’s magic. “When Weird Al first sat me down against my will and told me his life story, I didn’t believe any of it, but I knew that we had to make a movie about it,” Appel stated. The film will be a fictional biopic about the life of musician and comedy mastermind Al Yankovic, as played by Daniel Radcliffe. The cast also includes Julianne Nicholson, Rainn Wilson, Toby Huss, with Evan Rachel Wood as Madonna (who looks hilarious), and James Preston Rogers as Hulk Hogan. This is going to be extraordinary!! What a trailer!! I’m 1000% in for this. It’s premiering at the Toronto Film Festival before debuting in November. “Be as weird as you want to be.”

Here’s the main official trailer (+ poster) for Roku’s Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, from YouTube:

The screenplay is written by Al Yankovic & Eric Appel. The film is produced by Funny Or Die and Tango.
