A little under a year ago, we reported that Lee Daniels was in talks to direct the biopic, Janis Joplin: Get It While You Can with Amy Adams attached to play the late singer; the story would focus on a single day in Joplin’s life. Daniels’ latest film, Lee Daniels’ The Butler, had a successful opening weekend at the box office, and he is now set to make the Joplin biopic his follow-up. The director tells THR, “This is my next project for sure. I had no idea Janis Joplin was so smart — intellectual, even. Look, some of the smartest people in the world have been drug addicts.” He goes on to say that Adams, “can sing her ass off!” which isn’t surprising to anyone who saw Enchanted.
Daniels also went on to say that following the Joplin movie, he wants to do a screen adaptation of the musical Miss Saigon, “And then — I want to make a horror movie!” He says that like he hasn’t made one. Having seen The Paperboy, I can say that he’s already made something pretty horrific.
