Amy Adams is officially on board the Janis Joplin biopic. Deadline reports that Adams will star as Joplin in the film, which will be directed by Jean-Marc Vallee (Dallas Buyers Club) from a script by Ron and Theresa Terry.
The film will focus on Joplin, who rose to fame in the late ’60s as a music star before her life was cut short at the age of twenty-seven due to a heroin overdose. Previously titled Get It While You Can, the film does not currently have a title.
