The release date of the film adaptation of the musical Everybody’s

Talking About Jamie has been pushed back twice thus far, with the most recent January one leaving the project in a “unset” status; keep them peepers peeled for its release. Oh yeah, you probably want to

know what it’s about! My bad. The movie centers on the titular Jamie who causes quite the stir in Sheffield, England with his desire to be a drag queen. TBD

Two in-development projects are based on books. First up is

What If It’s Us, which was co-authored by Love, Simon scribe Becky Albertalli, along with Adam Silvera. The adaptation focuses on the cute aspects of two boys and their ensuing relationship.

Find Me, the sequel to Call Me by Your Name, has been announced

by director Luca Guadagnino with Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet set to reprise their roles. The follow-up film takes place years later and may answer the question of whether Elio and Oliver ended up together. Due to the coronavirus, production has yet to begin on Find Me. That means there’s plenty of time to stock up on peaches prior to its release.

Pose star Billy Porter has signed on to direct What If? The coming- of-age tale revolves around high school senior Khal professing his crush on trans student Kelsa, and details how the two navigate the hallways of school and life in pursuing a relationship. TBD

the lead singer of No Doubt. The Voice coach recently released a pop/ reggae-tinged new single, “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” and has laid down vocals tracks on two other tracks. TBD


Another artist said to be delving into a reggae vibe is Rihanna. RiRi, who hasn’t dropped any new music since 2016’s Anti, told British Vogue that she’s “aggressively working on music” for a ninth studio release. TBD

Such is the case with Adele, or what’s left of her – good for you, girl,

for trimming down, but she is nearly unrecognizable! Anyhoo, it’s reported that she told guests at a wedding that her latest musical baby was due last September. But it looks to still be gestating. She told the audience during her hosting stint on Saturday Night Live in October that “my album was not finished.”

C’mon ladies, get on it – we could use some good news for 2021! 10 | JANUARY 2021
