Bad news and good news: we’re going to have to keep waiting for the movie of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, but the West End musical will return on May 20. In the meantime, here’s the tantalizing movie trailer:
The film stars newcomer Max Harwood as well as Sarah Lancashire, Lauren Patel, Shobna Gulati, Ralph Ineson, Adeel Akhtar, and Samuel Bottomley, with Sharon Horgan and Richard E. Grant.
Via What’s on Stage:
No new date has been set, with Disney likely waiting to find the ideal time to release the musical flick – based on the award-winning stage show of the same name.
Both In the Heights and West Side have now confirmed new dates in the summer and winter of 2021 respectively, so we are keeping fingers crossed that Jamie will arrive as soon as possible in the new year.
The show, which has been in the West End for three years, is inspired by a documentary about Jamie Campbell, who wanted to be a drag queen at the age of 16. It had to halt its London run temporarily last night while the new tier restrictions are in place.
