Producer Paul Van Carter posted the photo to his Instagram account showing Flynn sitting in a diner with a cigarette in hand. Alongside Flynn's role as Bowie, the film includes Jena Malone playing the role of Bowie's first wife Angie, and Marc Maron as his publicist.

The film is currently in production with no release date scheduled. Earlier this year, Bowie's son Duncan Jones took to Instagram to voice his displeasure with the film saying it doesn't have the familiy's blessing.
