'Everybody’s Talking About Jamie' Is Skipping Theaters & Heading to Amazon Prime Video!

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie has found a home!

The movie adaptation of the popular West End musical is set to arrive on Amazon Prime Video, Variety reported Thursday (May 20).

The movie was originally set to premiere in theaters on October 23 of last year, but the pandemic pushed back those plans.

Amazon bought distribution rights for “an undisclosed sum,” according to the report.

The movie will now premiere on September 17 in over 240 countries and territories.

Here’s a plot summary: “Inspired by true events, 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.”

The movie stars newcomer Max Harwood, Sarah Lancashire, Lauren Patel, Shobna Gulati, Ralph Ineson, Adeel Akhtar, Samuel Bottomley, with Sharon Horgan and Richard E. Grant.

The stage production’s director, Jonathan Butterell, makes his feature-film debut as director, with screenplay and lyrics by Tom MacRae, songs by Dan Gillespie Sells and a score composed by Sells and Anne Dudley.
