Daisy Edgar-Jones will portray Carole King in Sony Pictures‘ film adaptation of the Broadway musical Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, which won two Tony awards.
Responding to the news, the legendary American singer, songwriter and musician said, “Daisy has a spirit and energy that I recognized as myself when I was younger. She’s a tremendous talent and I know she’s going to give a great performance.”
Where The Crawdads Sing, Normal People, and War of the Worlds are some of the movies that Golden Globe-nominated Daisy Edgar-Jones has starred in.
Oscar nominee Lisa Cholodenko will direct and produce the musical biopic with Playtone partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman, and Paul Blake.
Cholodenko and Stuart Blumberg are writing the script, telling the story of King’s rise to fame and off-stage triumphs and tragedies.
The screenplay is based on Douglas McGrath‘s book of the musical, Deadline reports.
