Lee Daniels Up for Janis Joplin Biopic Get It While You Can

October 17, 2012


Amy Adams' name has long been attached to a Janis Joplin biopic titled Get It While You Can. Today, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the feature is moving forward and that Lee Daniels (Precious, The Paperboy) is in talks to direct.

Joplin, an iconic young singer-songwriter of the 1960's, had her life tragically cut short at age 27 due to a heroin overdose. "Get It While You Can" was one of three hit singles the following year, alongside "Cry Baby" and "Me and Bobby McGee."

Daniels is currently filming The Butler while Adams can next be seen in On the Road and next summer as Lois Lane in Zack Snyder's Superman reboot Man of Steel.

Robert Katz, Andrew Sugerman and Ron Terry will produce Get It While You Can with Jay Tobin executive producing. The script arrives from Terry and his wife, Theresa Kounin-Terry.
