Tom Hanks and Billie Joe Armstrong! Who knew!

Though some other studios were actively pursuing the rights to the musical, in turns out that Tom's Playtone Productions will be producing the stage-to-film adaptation of American Idiot.

The details are still in the works, but Michael Mayer who direct the stage verision will return as the helmer for the film and Green Day frontman Billie Joe will reprise his Broadway role as St. Jimmy.

Hell! At this rate, why not just get the entire orginal stage crew and cast to come back! Might as well!

FYI - Playtone also has the rights to Spring Awakening. How busy are you at the moment, Lea Michele??? LOLZ!

    I will be your proofreader. Please.

    NO! no glee stars

    I'll definitely go see this.

    Although Lea Michelle is a talented singer, she does not fit into this rock n roll musical.



  4. 4

    Uhhh Lea Michele was never in the American Idiot Broadway cast…



  5. 5

    He said nothing about Lea being in American Idiot. The same company that has a option for American Idiot has the option on Spring Awakening too which Lea starred in on B-Way. And to say Lea could not do a rock musical is silly since Spring Awakening is considered a rock musical.

    Re: Simone is cooler – he didn't say a glee star should be in AI.



  7. 7

    Re: XraySpex – Lea has starred in one rock musical already so…but that is moot since no one said anything about her being in American Idiot.

    Re: Sadie-G8680 – no one said she was.
