It seems like I've been writing about the Janis Joplin movie duel forever--actually about 10 years. Now word is that Lee Daniels is, perhaps, maybe, possibly, going to direct one currently untitled version as early as next year. I'll believe it when I see it. But Amy Adams is attached to star as a much-prettier-than-Joplin Joplin.
The other version has also talked about filming soon with Martha Marcy May Marlene director Sean Durkin helming and Nina Arianda starring as Joplin.
As I recall, the two films have rights to different Joplin songs.
Will either film in Texas? Probably at least in part since she was raised in Port Arthur and later lived in Austin.
