‘Happy’ time at Weinstein

Co. options feature rights to 'Judy Garland'

The Weinstein Co. has optioned the feature rights to Gerald Clarke’s “Get Happy: the Life of Judy Garland.”

Clarke’s biography of Truman Capote served as the basis for Dan Futterman’s Oscar-nominated “Capote” script.

“Get Happy,” published in 2000, details how the actress and singer was plagued by personal problems and mistreated by employers, family and lovers.

Garland died in 1969 at the age of 47.
