A curse hangs over the biographical film about the icon of the psychedelic 60s Janis Joplin: the project Janis directed by Sean Darkin (“Martha, Marcy, May, Marlene”) has not been able to get off the ground for several years ... Perhaps the latest news about him from the portal Deadline will finally launch the stalled mechanism - Michelle Williams (Brokeback Mountain, Isle of the Damned) entered the negotiations for the leading role. If everything goes well, the actress will replace the previously announced (after many others) Nina Arianda ("Midnight in Paris", "Gangsta LOVE").|
The plot of the musical film was based on the book of the singer's sister Laura, titled Love, Janice , based on the correspondence of the rock star with his family, whose members the viewer could get acquainted with in the documentary film of last year “ Janice: Little Girl Is Sad, ”filmed by Amy Berg.
According to Deadline , Williams is interested in participating in the project. The actress is not the first time to transform into cult personalities: on account of her filigree performance of the role of the most attractive and unhappy woman Hollywood in the film "7 Days and Nights with Marilyn".
If all goes well, the biopic will finally satisfy the long-term interest of cinephiles in the figure of Janis Joplin , who died at the age of 27 from a heroin overdose and became a legend during her lifetime. The first attempts to show the star's musical career on the big screen were made almost immediately after her tragic death. The most successful then was the film "Rose" with Bette Midler in the title role. Subsequently, Renee Zellweger, Pink and Zooey Deschanel tried to try on the image of the cult singer, but for various reasons, projects with their participation failed.
Let's be clear on the fact that the upcoming biopic of Darkin has nothing to do with another upcoming biopic about the great blues singer, Janis Joplin: Do It While You Can, starring red-haired beauty Amy Adams. Although this project is not yet distinguished by a high production rate.
