(Gibson) After months of rumors and speculation, Green Day's 2004 album, American Idiot, has been given the go-ahead to be made into a big-screen, feature film.
Universal has officially signed Tom Hanks to produce the upcoming adaptation in partnership with Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool, said Reuters.
Green Day and their label had been in talks for a while about a proposed big-screen adaptation of the Grammy-winning album, following the success of the one-act, all-sung American Idiot Broadway musical, directed by Michael Mayer. more on this story
