West End jewel Everybody's Talking About Jamie is getting its very own film stage adaptation! Directed by Jonathan Butterell, who also directed the musical, Everybody's Talking About Jamie will be open in cinemas on 23 October 2020.
Max Harwood will be making his professional film debut starring as Jamie New, currently played by Layton Williams in the West End. Harwood got the part after auditioning at an open casting call where 20 Sheffield locals were cast.
Everybody's Talking About Jamie premiered in Sheffield before making its West End debut in 2017. The musical garnered five Olivier Award nominations in 2018, including Best Musical.
Alongside Layton Williams as Jamie, the musical also stars Bill Ward as Hugo/Loco Chanelle, Rita Simons as Miss Hedge, Sejal Keshwala as Ray and Sabrina Sandhu as Pritti Pasha.
Growing up on a Sheffield Council Estate isn't plain sailing for teenage Jamie. Out of touch with his peers yet always ready with a comeback for his bullies, he's just not sure what the future holds. Supported by his wonderful mum and his tight knit group of pals, he sets out to confront his fate head on and become the star he was always meant to be.
