I was convinced this project wouldn’t make it, but it seems I was wrong. The Hollywood Reporter came today with the news that Lee Daniels is in talks to direct “Get it While You Can” the Janis Joplin biopic that has Amy Adams attached to star as the queen of rock ‘n’ roll.

Daniels, who garnered acclaim and an Oscar nomination for his 2009 gritty drama Precious, followed that up with Southern thriller The Paperboy, which stars Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron and Nicole Kidman and is now in theaters.

The project is independently financed, and there have been preliminary talks with Focus Features about coming on board, though no deal has been made. An early 2013 production start is being eyed. Robert Katz and Andrew Sugerman are producing along with Ron Terry, who wrote the screenplay with his wife, Theresa Kounin-Terry. Jay Tobin is exec producing.

So, excited much?

While checking this morning Amy’s IMDb page, I see the Janis Joplin biopic isn’t listed anymore. If you access the movie page, you also can’t see nothing but the writers name.

This movie has been tabled for so many times, maybe it’s happening again. I’m searching around to get more updates about it, but, for now, the status is unknown.

Amy Adams is known for playing characters with sunny dispositions, but the Oscar-nominated star is getting ready to play what may prove to be her most challenging role to date.

It’s there,” she said with a smile at this week’s Variety Power Women’s Luncheon, when we asked if it was confirmed that she would be playing late rocker Janis Joplin in an upcoming biopic about her life.

But taking on the character of one of America’s edgiest, most esteemed music legends comes with mixed emotions for 36-year-old Adams.

I’m feeling excited, scared – all of the things,” Adams said, adding that she was a huge fan of Joplin, who died in 1970 at the age of 27

Thanks to my very good friend Becca of Blake Lively Fan, we have a new scan of Amy in Entertainment Weekly. The article is talking about how she is confirmed for the Janis Joplin biopic, and it is a very good read. Make sure you check it out in the gallery by clicking on the picture to the left. Enjoy!
