A press release for the film explains: "BACK TO BLACK will focus on Amy’s extraordinary genius, creativity and honesty that infused everything she did. A journey that took her from the craziness and colour of 90’s Camden High Street to global adoration - and back again, BACK TO BLACK crashes through the looking glass of celebrity to watch this journey from behind the mirror, to see what Amy saw, to feel what she felt."

The film, which has been made with the support of the Amy Winehouse's family, is also screen-written by Matt Greenhalgh (who previously worked with Taylor-Johnson on Nowhere Boy) while Alison Owen, Debra Hayward and Nicky Kentish-Barnes are named as the film's producers.

In December last year, Winehouse’s parents said in a statement: “We are thrilled that StudioCanal, Focus Features and Monumental are making this movie celebrating our daughter Amy’s extraordinary music legacy and showcasing her talent in the way that it deserves.”

Back To Black will be released in cinemas in the UK & Ireland on April 12th 2024.
