The late Amy Winehouse will be the subject of a new film by the team behind the 2010 Formula One documentary Senna, and is set for release in the UK in July.
Amy – the upcoming documentary – will detail the internationally-revered singer’s brief life and will hit British cinemas on July 3rd this year, just shy of the 4th anniversary of her death.
To mark the news, a teaser poster for the film was unveiled yesterday on The Hollywood Reporter, following a one minute-long trailer which debuted at Universal Music Group‘s pre-Grammy brunch back in February.
First announced in 2013, Amy was directed by Asif Kapadia, and uses unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks. The British filmmaker’s 2010 documentary Senna, about late Formula One star Ayrton Senna, earned critical acclaim and picked up two BAFTA awards.
Amy was also produced by James Gay-Rees, producer of the popular Banksy documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop.
Winehouse, who rose to international fame with her second album Back to Black, died tragically on July 23, 2011 from alcohol poisoning at the eerie age of 27.
Altitude is handling the U.K. release, and at this stage, no international date has been announced.
