A musical based on the 1976, David Bowie-starring film The Man Who Fell To Earth is set to see it’s first London run later this year. The play, which debuted in New York at the end of last year, is directed by Belgian director Ivo van Hove and was one of the last works completed by Bowie before his death. The UK production will star Dexter and Six Feet Under actor Michael C Hall as Bowie’s character Thomas Jerome Newton. Michael Esper will also reprise his role from the original production as Valentine and Sophia Anne Caruso is set to play Girl.

It was also announced recently that the original film The Man Who Fell To Earth will be given a 4K cinema remaster this year.
