(Gibson) Green Day might be bringing their American Idiot musical to the silver screen, after already hitting Broadway with the production, based on their 2004 album. According to The New York Times, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong would play a significant role in the film.

"We're definitely in talks," said Michael Mayer, who directed the stage version of Idiot. "There are people who have the ability to make it happen, who have expressed genuine interest in it, and we want to do it, so I think it could happen." Tom Hanks' Playtone production company is among those who are interested in putting together the film version.

Mayer also said that bringing in Armstrong to play the role of St. Jimmy (which he's done twice so far on Broadway) is "a no-brainer." more on this story
