New mom and Academy Award nominee Amy Adams will play troubled singer Janis Joplin in a forthcoming biopic about the wild child Joplin and her thrilling life. Adams' reps confirmed the casting news, according to EW. But don't get your hopes up about this movie, since this isn't the first time a biopic about Joplin has been attempted only to stall. But this project, currently untitled, will be directed by City of God helmer Fernando Meirelles for Temple Hill Entertainment.
While Adams has a knack for comedy, this meaty role would really demonstrate the dramatic chops she displayed as a nun in Doubt.
