Angels in America Tony Award winner Andrew Garfield will play classical pianist James Rhodes in the upcoming biopic Instrumental, which is set to begin production later this year, according to The Wrap.

Directed by James Marsh (The Theory of Everything), the film is based on Rhodes’ 2017 memoir, Instrumental: A Memoir of Madness, Medication, and Music. Rhodes charts his personal and artistic journey in the memoir, which delves into sexual abuse, addiction, and mental illness.

Debra Hayward and Alison Owen will produce Instrumental for Lionsgate.

Garfield was last seen on Broadway in the Tony Award–winning revival of Angels in America, a performance that earned him the 2018 Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play. He made his Broadway debut in the 2012 revival of Death of a Salesman, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman.
