2020 has been a bit of a disaster for film and TV, with productions and release dates being put on hold left, right and centre. But one project that has a solid release date, brilliant cast and exciting first trailer is Everybody's Talking About Jamie.
Here's what you need to know about the upcoming adaptation.
What's Everybody's Talking About Jamie about?
First adapted into a West End play, Everybody's Talking About Jamie is based on the true story of Jamie New: a teenage boy who wants to be a drag queen. A tale of identity and belonging, Jamie is attempting to find his place in the world and plan for his future, while also facing judgement from family and classmates. Thankfully, his mum Margaret (played by Sarah Lancashire) and the brilliant drag queen Loco Channelle (Richard E. Grant) are on hand to offer support, guidance - and great high heels.
Who stars in Everybody's Talking About Jamie?
The film's cast is brilliant - newcomers Max Harwood and Samuel Bottomley play Jamie New and Dean Paxton respectively, while Richard E. Grant plays Loco Channelle. Sarah Lancashire plays Jamie's mum Margaret New, Sharon Horgan plays his teacher Miss Hedge and Ralph Ineson plays his disapproving dad, Wayne New. Adeel Akhtar plays Iman Mashood, Shobna Gulati plays Ray and Charlotte Salt plays Cheryl. Exciting!
Do we have an Everybody's Talking About Jamie trailer?
Yes! The first trailer dropped in early October 2020, and it's as emotional as it is brilliant. In it, we watch Jamie tentatively dip his toe into performing and drag, while his friends and family adjust to the teen as a queen. Watch the trailer above.
Does Everybody's Talking About Jamie have a release date?
After originally being slated for a October 2020 release date, Everybody's Talking About Jamie is now due in cinemas on February 26, 2021. We'll have 0ur fingers and toes crossed that it actually happens!
