Amy Adams to Play Janis Joplin in New Biopic
A Janis Joplin biopic is an idea that's been floating around the entertainment stratosphere for what seems like eons.
Although no contracts have officially been signed, Lee Daniels (Precious) is in talks to direct the feature film tentatively titled, Get it While You Can, with an estimated 2013 release date.
Janis rose to popularity in the 1960s due to prolific and powerful anthems like Piece of my Heart, and particularly poignant renditions of classics like Me and Bobby McGee and Summertime.
She died of a heroin overdoese in L.A. at the age of 27.
A revolving door of actresses have been up for the coveted role of Janis throughout the years, among them Renee Zellweger, Zooey Deschanel and Scarlett Johansson.
