New from A Reel of One’s Own by Andrea Thompson: They Don’t Make ‘Em Much Stranger Than ‘Weird: The Al Yankovic Story’

It’s another biopic about an iconic musical star, and we have a problem. Certain tropes demand to be met, and what if the star in question simply didn’t have the usual milestones in his life – the drug abuse, the parental estrangement, the stint in rehab, etc.? In this case, you have the star in question write something truly deranged and find a lead who’s willing to be Weird. Literally.
