Amy Adams As Janis Joplin In Biopic


Amy Adams is officially on board the Janis Joplin biopic. Deadline reports that Adams will star as Joplin in the film, which will be directed by Jean-Marc Vallee (Dallas Buyers Club) from a script by Ron and Theresa Terry.

The film will focus on Joplin, who rose to fame in the late ’60s as a music star before her life was cut short at the age of twenty-seven due to a heroin overdose. Previously titled Get It While You Can, the film does not currently have a title.
