The West End production Everybody’s Talking About Jamie has been a runaway success since debuting at The Apollo Theatre in 2017 after a successful Sheffield debut, so it is no surprise that a film adaptation of the musical would be fast approaching.

Newcomer Max Harwood takes the lead role and is joined by: Sarah Lancashire, Lauren Patel, Shobna Gulati, Ralph Ineson, Adeel Akhtar, Sam Bottomley, Sharon Horgan and Richard E. Grant.
