Long-Awaited Janis Joplin Biopic Scrapped

Janis Joplin

(Radio.com) Turns out Amy Adams won't be playing Janis Joplin after all. The five-time Oscar nominee signed on four years ago to play the late rock hero in a biopic titled, Get it While You Can. But now that project has been scrapped reports Collider.

Director Jean-Marc Vallee shared that he was, "working with Amy Adams on the Janis [Joplin] project that we're finally not doing, and she invited me to play in her new sandbox, doing a TV series."

Vallee will be doing an adaptation of Gillian Flynn's Sharp Objects instead. The project had been seven years in the making. During that time it was pegged to various directors, and several actresses were being considered for the role of Joplin, including Renee Zellweger and Reese Witherspoon. Read more here.
