Green Day Turning 'American Idiot' Into a Movie?
Since Green Day's album American Idiot graced the Broadway stage six years ago, there has been talk about turning the well-received musical into a movie. Front man Billie Joe Armstrong might take the lead role of St. Jimmy, and he told The New York Times he would like to develop the film project with Michael Mayer, the theatrical director of the play American Idiot.
"We're definitely in talks. 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."
