First, American Idiot was an album, then it was a Broadway musical, and if Universal has their way, that musical will become a movie. Could we turn it into a mini-series and a video game too? “Wake Billie Joe Armstrong up before September ends, by using the X button.”

Green Day may drop dookies into theaters nationwide, if this deal goes through. The show’s Broadway director, Michael Mayer, would direct the film version.┬áDustin Lance Black (Milk) would adapt the musical script for the screen. Punks were once considered counter-culture rebels, right? I can’t think of anything more mainstream than a hit Broadway show turned into a big budget movie. I guess if “Glee” does a cover of “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” that’d be that.

Armstrong might play a drug dealer in the American Idiot movie, a character he sometimes plays on stage. Hmm… looking at him, I just don’t see it. (Deadline)
