Everybody’s Talking About Jamie film gets new worldwide release date
The eagerly anticipated big-screen adaptation of the Sheffield set musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, has finally been given a new worldwide release date.
The West End hit, which stars screen newcomer Max Harwood as a Sheffield teenager who dreams of a drag career on stage, was originally set for release in October 2020 before the coronavirus pandemic forced an indefinite postponement.
The good news is that today (20 May 2021) a new trailer has been release which confirms that Everybody’s Talking About Jamie will be released in the UK and internationally on 17 September via streaming service Amazon Prime.
“Everybody’s Talking About Jamie has quickly become one of the most beloved musicals of recent years,” says Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios.
“Jamie’s story is one that resonates across all generations – it’s about unconditional love and we know our global audiences will fall in love with Jamie as he overcomes adversity to truly find his authentic self. We are so thrilled to share this joyful and inspirational story with the world.”
Director Jonathan Butterell added: “I am thrilled that our film – the story of taking your place in the world with joy, pride and acceptance – will be winging its way across the world with the Amazon Family.
“Let’s come together to celebrate the glorious and fabulous uniqueness of each and every one of us.”
Everybody’s Talking About Jamie co-stars Sarah Lancashire as Jamie’s mum, Sharon Horgan as Jamie’s uninspired careers advisor Miss Hedge (played in the West End by stars including Michelle Visage, Rita Simons and Faye Tozer), and Richard E. Grant as local drag legend and mentor Miss Loco (played in the West End by stars including Bianca Del Rio, Shane Ritchie and Rufus Hound).
