"Judy," currently in production, is set in 1968 as the singer arrives in London to perform a series of sold-out shows. Zellweger stars in the title role, with Rufus Sewell ("The Man in the High Castle") cast as Garland's ex-husband, Sidney Luft.
Garland died of an accidental overdose in the summer of 1969 at age 47.
Rupert Goold ("True Story") is set to direct. "Judy" is a joint production between Pathé, BBC Films, and Ingenious Media.
No release date has yet been announced for the project.
