Amy Winehouse Biopic 'Back to Black' Gets 2024 Release Date

We now have another update about the Amy Winehouse biopic, Back to Black. The film, which stars Marisa Abela, finally has a release date. The Sam Taylor-Johnson-directed film will open in UK theaters on April 12, 2024. However, a  U.S. release date has not been set yet.

Principal photography on the film began earlier this year in London, with Jack O’Connell appearing as Blake Fielder-Civil: Winehouse’s former husband. The film will mark the second biopic collab from Taylor-Johnson and writer Martin Greenhalgh, who worked together on the 2009 John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy.

Back to Black was first announced all the way back in 2018 and has been made with support from the Winehouse estate. Taylor-Johnson was revealed to be the director last year. The film is believed to be a passion project for Taylor-Johnson, who was a close friend of Winehouse’s when she was alive.

After documentaries about the artist, Back to Black will be the first narrative film to tackle Amy Winehouse's life story. Winehouse was the subject of the Academy Award–winning documentary Amy in 2015, but her family members criticized the film, calling it a “misleading” and “unbalanced” portrayal of the singer. There's also the documentary Amy Winehouse: Back to Black, which was released in 2018.
