Andrew Garfield to Play Pianist James Rhodes in Biopic ‘Instrumental’

Bleecker Street

Next up for Andrew Garfield is another biopic. The actor is set to star in the drama “Instrumental,” Deadline reports. It’s based on James Rhodes’s memoir of the same name and tells the story of how music helped the acclaimed concert pianist cope with abuse, trauma, and addiction.
Garfield will play Rhodes, and the pianist seems thrilled about it. After the news broke, Rhodes tweeted about it, writing, “Well this is some exciting news to share… What an awesome team!” He also added that he hopes the adaptation will “do a lot for classical music.”
Garfield previously played British advocate Robin Cavandish in the biopic “Breathe.” More recently, he starred in the neo-noir mystery film “Under the Silver Lake.” The actor is also well-known for roles in “Hacksaw Ridge” and “The Social Network,” among others.
“Instrumental” has an Academy Award-winning director on board, as James Marsh (“The Theory of Everything”) is helming. Production is scheduled to begin in the U.K. before the end of the year. Monumental Pictures’ Debra Hayward and Alison Owens are set to produce.
