Jean-Marc Vallee To Direct Amy Adams In The Role She Was Born To Play

Janis Joplin gets the Oscar biopic treatment.

After directing Matthew McConaughey to Oscar glory in Dallas Buyers Club, Jean-Marc Vallee has signed on to hopefully do the same for Amy Adams in a biopic of rock legend Janet Jorpler. And hey! There’s already a clip available:

The film, written by Ron and Theresa Terry is likely to be called Get it While You Can and expects to start shooting mid-2015. Before then, the film may be rewritten by Dallas Buyers Club writers Craig Borten and Melissa Wallack.

As far as Amy Adams goes, this has been a dream of hers for years, and she isn’t new to the project. But now that all these other people are jumping in there, we should definitely be getting a solid Janet Jorpler movie soon. Hopefully it’s as Jorptastic as Jorpler deserves.
