This summer Warp Films have been shooting the feature film adaption of the hit musical EVERYBODY'S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE.
Shooting in and around Sheffield over the summer months, we are nearing the end of our shoot and want to invite the whole of Sheffield to come together and celebrate with us.
Inspired by the true story of Jamie Campbell, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie follows 16-year-old Jamie New who lives on a council estate in Sheffield. Jamie doesn’t quite fit in. Jamie is terrified about the future. Jamie is going to be a sensation. Supported by his brilliant loving mum and surrounded by his friends, Jamie overcomes prejudice, beats the bullies and steps out of the darkness, into the spotlight. Recent Academy Award™ nominee Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Logan) plays former drag queen and Jamie’s mentor Hugo with BAFTA nominee Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe) as Jamie’s teacher Miss Hedge and BAFTA winner Sarah Lancashire (Happy Valley) as his mother Margaret. Shobna Gulati, from the original stage cast, will reprise her role of Ray.
Join us on Deerlands Avenue as we shoot one of the last scenes of our film and celebrate Sheffield and everything Jamie! There will be special guests, music and a film crew shooting! This is your chance to be in the film and have a great time whilst you're at it!
