Update, January 5: Picturehouse has clarified that a release date has not been set yet.

A representative from the UK cinema network confirmed that movie is on its way to the big screen.

The BBC and BFI-backed film hits the big screen.

A movie about Grace Jones is set to be screened in UK cinemas after Picturehouse Entertainment acquired the rights to Sophie Fiennes’ experimental documentary.

Grace Jones – The Musical Of My Life is described as a “doc-biopic” that creates a “multi-narrative journey through the private and public life” of the singer, model, actress and all-round icon, mixing intimate personal footage with staged musical sequences.

Fiennes, whose previous films include the acclaimed Slavoj Žižek-presented documentary The Pervert’s Guide To Cinema, has been working on the film with Jones since 2005, reports Screen Daily.

Jones has starred in several movies throughout her career, including A View To A Kill and Conan The Destroyer. The Jamaican-born singer made her musical comeback in 2008 with the excellent Hurricane.

In 2015 she appeared in Gutterdämmerung, a “loud and dark fairytale” movie also starring Iggy Pop and Lemmy.

Watch her perform ‘Williams’ Blood’ in 2010.
