The project emerged following the passing of Winehouse in 2011. While there were several initial attempts to create a biopic, it wasn’t until 2018 that Amy Winehouse’s estate confirmed a deal to produce a film capturing her life and career. StudioCanal commenced production in July 2022, and the filming took place in various London locations from January to April 2023.

“Back to Black” is set for a theatrical release by StudioCanal in the United Kingdom on April 12, 2024, and in the United States by Focus Features on May 10, 2024. This biopic aims to provide an in-depth look at Winehouse’s life, her rise to fame, and her enduring legacy in the music industry.

What Is the Movie About

The film according to the creators will offer a “never-before-seen glimpse into Amy Winehouse’s early rise to fame and the release of her groundbreaking studio album, Back to Black. Told from Amy’s perspective, the film is an unapologetic look at the woman behind the phenomenon and the relationship that inspired one of the most legendary albums of all time.”

Cast and Characters of the Movie

“Back To Black” features a talented cast, with Marisa Abela from “Industry” portraying Amy Winehouse. Joining her is Jack O’Connell, known for his role in “Ferrari,” who will play Amy’s former husband Blake Fielder-Civil. Eddie Marsan from “Fair Play” takes on the role of her father Mitch Winehouse, and Lesley Manville, who appeared in “Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris,” portrays her grandmother, Cynthia Winehouse. This ensemble of actors brings a mix of experience and fresh talent to the film, promising a compelling portrayal of Winehouse’s life and legacy.

Sam Taylor-Johnson, the director of the film via an official press release stated that: “Discovering a talent like Marisa Abela is akin to finding gold dust. The moment she looked into the lens at her first audition I knew she was the perfect actor to play Amy Winehouse. She put in an enormous amount of work, and attention to every detail and she trained daily for hours to be able to sing throughout the entire movie. She doesn’t impersonate Amy, she inhabits her.”

When Was the Movie Filmed?

“Back to Black” commenced its principal photography in January 2023, capturing the essence of Amy Winehouse’s journey to stardom by filming in various iconic locations across London. These sites are significant as they are where Winehouse developed into the globally cherished artist known today. Key scenes were shot at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, a venue pivotal to Winehouse’s early career.

It was at this renowned jazz club where she began performing live, refining her now legendary sound. Interestingly, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club also holds personal significance for the film’s director, Sam Taylor-Johnson, as it was where she first witnessed Winehouse’s live performance. This connection adds a layer of authenticity and personal investment to the film’s direction.
