About damn time!
Amy Adams has been attached to star as Janis Joplin in the biopic Get It While You Can since 2010, but producers have had a tough time finding a suitable director — until now!
Precious filmmaker Lee Daniels is in talks to take on the independent project. If he can be convinced to make the movie, production will finally begin in 2013!
The guy just wrapped his White House biopic, The Butler, so he should have learned a thing or two about adapting the lives of real people for the big screen.
If you've seen his first feature or perhaps his latest, The Paperboy, then you know he's got the gritty style that would match the iconic singers wild life.
Get your act together, Hollywood! This is one movie we would really like to see some day soon.
