The first trailer and the release date have been dropped for the film version of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.20th Century Studios has confirmed in theaters February 26, 2021.
Inspired by a real story, “Everybody’s Talking About Jamie” is the film adaptation of the hit musical. Jamie New is 16 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 loving mom and his amazing friends, Jamie overcomes prejudice, beats the bullies, and steps out of the darkness, into the spotlight.
Last year it won three WhatsOnStage Awards, including Best New Musical, and was nominated for five Olivier Awards.
