Milk recently completed production on Twentieth Century Studios’ upcoming musical drama feature film Everybody’s Talking About Jamie – based on the hit West End musical of the same name.
Jamie New is a 16-year-old and doesn’t quite fit in. Instead of pursuing a “real” career he dreams of becoming a drag queen. Uncertain about his future, Jamie knows one thing for sure: he is going to be a sensation. Supported by his Mum and his amazing friends, Jamie overcomes prejudice, beats the bullies and steps out of the darkness into the spotlight.
The film is directed by Jonathan Buttrell, writer Tom MacRae, and composer/songwriter Dan Gillespie Sells, who were all part of the stage musical’s creation. Milk’s VFX Supervisor was Ciaran Crowley, alongside VFX Producer Rory-Knight-Jones.
Everybody’s Talking About Jamie stars newcomer Max Harwood as Jamie while co-stars include Sarah Lancashire as his mother, Ralph Ineson as his father, Sharon Horgan as his teacher and Richard E Grant as his mentor.
Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is set for release in 2021.
