Amy Winehouse ‘Back to Black’: Mark Ronson’s Absence Raises Eyebrows

Mark Ronson, the music maestro behind Amy Winehouse’s chart-topping hits, will not be featured in her upcoming biopic, ‘Back to Black.’ Ronson, who played a pivotal role in Winehouse’s musical journey, won’t make an appearance in the film, despite his significant contributions to the singer’s career.

Ronson, known for his collaborations with Winehouse on iconic tracks like ‘Back to Black,’ ‘Rehab’ and ‘You Know I’m No Good,’ was notably absent from the cast list of the biopic directed by Sam Taylor Johnson. Despite initially casting Jeff Tunke to portray Ronson in the film and even filming scenes with him, the final edits of the movie omitted his character entirely, and his credit was removed from IMDB.

Mark Ronson, whose collaboration with Winehouse on ‘Back to Black’ earned him critical acclaim, went on to achieve further success with hits like Bruno Mars’s ‘Uptown Funk.’ He even won an Oscar for producing ‘Shallow’ from ‘A Star is Born’ and composed the soundtrack for ‘Barbie.’
