We had earlier reported that the biopic of late musician Amy Winehouse is in the making, titled Back to Black and starring Marisa Abela. Actors Jack O'Connell, Eddie Marsan, and Lesley Manville have also joined the cast of the film.

The film is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson backed by Focus Features, Monumental Pictures and Studio Canal. With screenplay by Matt Greenhalgh, it is executive produced by Nicky Kentish-Barnes, Ron Halpern and Joe Naftalin.

Back to Black will concentrate on Amy's creative journey in the field of music, her rise to the stardom and the emotions the late singer felt through the glitz and glamour she travelled through.

In the upcoming film, Jack will be portraying Black Fielder-Civil who was married to Amy from 2007 to 2009. Amy and Blake's marriage fell apart in two years due to their turmoiled relationship which was hampered by substance abuse and violence. Actor Eddie will be essaying the role of Amy's father who was also the late singer's confidant and advisor. The role of Amy's grandmother will be played by Lesley.
