Amy Adams will portray Janis Joplin in an upcoming bio-pic about the legendary rock star. Joplin died of a drug overdose in 1970 at age 27. Director Lee Daniels confirmed Adams has the part. He says, “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.” Daniels thinks Adams will be perfect to play the part. He said, “Guess what? She can sing!”
Amy Adams recently starred as Lois Lane in Man of Steel.
