According to Deadline, Andrew is set to star in a drama called ‘Instrumental’.
Hacksaw Ridge star Andrew Garfield is teaming up with Oscar-winner James Marsh (The Theory Of Everything) for drama biopic Instrumental, which is due to get underway in the UK later this year.
Based on internationally acclaimed concert pianist James Rhodes’ bestselling memoir, the project is being produced by Debra Hayward (Les Misérables) and Alison Owen’s (Suffragette) Monumental Pictures. Garfield will star as Rhodes.
Rhodes’ memoir reveals how music saved his life after he suffered sexual abuse as a pupil at his all-boys junior school. The pianist prodigy suffered mentally as well as physically, including spinal damage, eating disorders and PTSD, while his abuser died before he could appear in court. Monumental previously beat out U.S. and UK companies for rights to the story.
