Looks like Lil’ Red is going to play Big Brother.
Wyck Godfrey, producer of the Twilight series, recently mentioned in an interview that his company Temple Hill Entertainment would be overseeing a “Fernando Meirelles [City of God] Janis Joplin movie with Amy Adams playing Janis Joplin.” IMDB has the same info listed, and Nikki Finke of Deadline.com confirmed the story. Must be true, right?
Various Janis Joplin projects have circulated in the past. Other names attached have included Pink (rough week: first, she takes a spill onstage, then this), Zooey Deschanel, Lili Taylor and Jenna Maroney.
While each of the aforementioned have their share of rock credentials, the Academy Award-winning Adams is not without hers. From Marvel Ann to Cheap Thrills–makes sense to me.
