Janis Joplin Biopic ‘Get It While You Can’ No Longer Happening

Jean-Marc Vallée gave a series of interviews to promote his HBO show ‘Big Lille Lies’. He’s also attached to direct ‘Sharp Objects’, that came with an invite from Amy Adams herself after the Janis Joplin project was cancelled, he told to Collider:

“It was supposed to be a movie first, but Marti Noxon is the guilty one. She’s the one that went to eOne because eOne had the rights, and then they went to HBO. She went to Gillian, eOne and HBO and said, ‘This is a TV series. This is not a film. Here’s why.’ She had a plan and a vision, and here we are, shooting eight episodes. We’re starting very soon. I committed to that before Big Little Lies. I was working with Amy Adams on the Janis [Joplin] project that we’re finally not doing, and she invited me to play in her new sandbox, doing a TV series. And then, Reese [Witherspoon] came and said, ‘I want you to come do this first, since that’s not ready.’ I said to Reese, ‘Okay, I’ll do Episodes 1 and 2 because I won’t have time [to do more]. I have to do Sharp Objects.’ And then, here we are.”

Amy boarded the Joplin biopic around 2010, at which point Fernando Meirelles was attached to helm. In 2013, director Lee Davis said this would be his next project. Eventually, Vallée took the director’s chair. Before Amy was attached, Reese Witherspoon and Renee Zellweger were linked to the lead role, and Catherine Hardwicke once considered directing.

It’s always possible the project will get revived in another form somewhere down the line, but it won’t be Adams and Vallée’s version.

Vallée went on to say that filming for Sharp Objects begins on March 6th, so while Adams is currently on the awards circuit for her stunning turn in Arrival, she’s due to start shooting the flashy TV series in just over a month’s time. HBO hasn’t yet revealed a premiere date for the show, but it will likely be sometime in 2018.
