Buh-Bye Broadway! Hello Big Screen! American Idiot Could Be Made Into A Movie!

Don't get your hopes up yet, but we think there is strong possibility that this might happen.

Universal Pictures is looking into making the Green Day Broadway musical, American Idiot, into a full-blown musical feature film. Nothing is inked yet, but we're hearing that Dustin Lance Black is being courted to write the script, Michael Mayer to direct, and of course, Billie Joe Armstrong to play the role of the drug dealer St. Jimmy, a role he assumed several times during the run of the show on Broadway.

Honestly, we think this is a great idea…if they can get Billie Joe to do it. No offense, but the numbers don't lie - audiences showed up in droves when Billie was in the show versus when he wasn't. The same will happen with this movie.

We think we've just found your objective, Universal. Secure Billie Joe Armstrong at all costs (and we really mean that!)
