Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Joan Jett has recorded a song for the forthcoming film, Miss You Already. The song is the title track to the movie — which focuses on the lifelong friendship of two women — and hits on the film’s themes of loss and the preciousness of memories in a razor-toothed surge of guitars with a hot chorus,” according to Rolling Stone. It was written by Jett, guitarist Dougie Needles and Jett’s longtime manager Kenny Laguna. “I give her pop..She gives me menace,” said Laguna of the track. Helmed by Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, the movie stars Drew Barrymore, Toni Collette, Dominic Cooper and Jacqueline Bissett. Jett also spoke with Rolling Stone about sexism in rock. “People look at women differently,” Jett says. “Men are viable into old age. Women all of a sudden become matronly? C’mon, man!” Jett — who is on the road with The Who through November — said a typical day off stage consists of doing “nothing.” “If I can help it,” she said “I’d work at the animal shelter. Or I kick back on my royalties, just be out in nature.”

Cambridge News has posted an article about Toni Collette’s research for “Miss You Already” and the support she has received from the Cambridge University Hospitals: It is not every day that people get up and go to work and give advice to a Hollywood movie star. But two specialist nurses and a consultant from Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) got to do just that. Neuro-oncology specialist nurse Ingela Oberg, breast cancer specialist nurse Alison Hallett and cancer consultant Dr Richard Baird provided on-set clinical consultancy to Hollywood actress Toni Collette, during the filming of new comedy drama, Miss You Already. The film follows Milly and her best friend Jess, played by Drew Barrimore, who are lifelong friends who struggle to maintain their relationship when they are both hit by heartache. Town planner Jess lives a happy bohemian life with her partner Jago – played by Paddy Considine – until she struggles to conceive the baby she has always longed for. The trio gave guidance to Collette, whose plays character Milly, a high-flyer with two children and a husband Kit – played by Dominc Cooper – whose life is upturned when she develops a brain tumour following the spread of breast cancer. “Toni and the production team were very keen to portray what it’s like living with a brain tumour, as accurately as possible,” said Ingela. “They approached me and asked if I could guide Toni on how her character’s behaviour might change, and the kind of challenges she should expect to face with an illness like brain cancer.” The complete article can be read over at Cambridge News.
