Amy Adams as Janis Joplin?

Well this is pretty interesting, shocking and weird— all at the same time.

Deadline is reporting that Amy Adams has signed on to portray Janis Joplin in a biopic, at least according to a conversation had with the film producer Wyck Godfrey.

However, there is no studio involved and at the moment the script is still a work in progress, but the light at the end of the tunnel is Fernando Meirelles (City of God) will be in the directors chair.

Weird, right?  Deadline is pretty accurate with their information, so I’ll keep this bit of news on my radar.

What do you guys think? Does Amy Adams have what it takes to play Janis Joplin?

    I’m not thrilled with this casting. I am a fan of Janis, have been for many years and I would hate to see her life candy coated. I just recently watched an interview with Janis on the Dick Cavett show. I doubt Amy Adams can pull it off.

    JMO = )

    True. We’ll see when the trailer comes out.

    How is editing coming along on your film?

    Have a great day!
