Stardust is not authorised by Bowie's estate. The late singer's son, Duncan Jones, said that he's "pretty certain nobody has been granted music rights for any biopic. ... I would know."

"I'm not saying this movie is not happening. I honestly wouldn't know. I'm saying that as it stands, this movie won't have any of Dad's music in it, and I can't imagine that changing. If you want to see a biopic without his music or the family's blessing, that's up to the audience."
