NEWS: Release of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie Film Delayed

The release of the big screen adaptation of the musical has been delayed for a second time.

Joining other big screen musical adaptations such as In the Heights and West Side Story, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie has had its release date postponed by Disney until further notice.

Having originally due to be released in October this year, the film’s cinema release was then pushed back until February 2021.

The film is based on the West End musical which has been performing London for the last three years. In turn, the musical is inspired by a documentary about the story of Jamie Campbell, who wanted to be a drag queen at the age of 16.

The musical features music by The Feeling’s Dan Gillespie Sells, book and lyrics by Tom McRae and direction by Jonathan Butterell. Both McRae and Butterell are involved with the feature film.

Meanwhile, the film is set to star newcomer Max Harwood in the titular part. Richard E Grant will take on the role of Hugo/Loco Chanel, with Sarah Lancashire playing Margaret New, Sharon Horgan as Miss Hedge and Shobna Gulati playing Ray after having taken on the role in the West End.
