The biopic about Amy Winehouse which has been teased by the late singer's father Mitch Winehouse since 2020 has finally been given a release date.

Back to Black is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson (Fifty Shades of Grey, Nowhere Boy, A Million Little Pieces), and sees Industry's Marisa Abela star as Winehouse, and Jack O’Connell (Skins, This Is England, Unbroken) appearring as Blake Fielder-Civil, Winehouse’s former husband. This is the first Amy Winehouse film to be backed by her family, following multiple unauthorised releases including 2015's Amy and 2018's Amy Winehouse: Back to Black.

Taylor-Johnson completed the film with writer Martin Greenhalgh; the pair previously worked together on the 2009 John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy.

Back to Black will be released on 12 April in the UK. There is yet to be a release date for the rest of the world.
