Green Day’s “American Idiot” heading to big screen

By Sean O’Connell Can the “American Idiot” album make the three members of Green Day EGOT winners?

You know the EGOT – it stands for Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony, the four main entertainment trophies. “Idiot” already won a Grammy, while the Broadway production based on the music won a Tony.

Up next? The Oscars.

“American Idiot” is about to be adapted by into a big-screen feature film, with Universal “in negotiations to pick up the screen rights,” according to THR. The studio’s even considering hiring Broadway director Michael Mayer to shoot the film, while also eyeballing Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (“Milk”) to pen the script.

“A concept album tackling the ideas of love vs. rage, ‘American Idiot’ follows three characters: the aimless Jesus of Suburbia, punk rock freedom fighter St. Jimmy, and Whatsername,” THR notes.

Considering the fact that Green Day sold out the minute they brought their rock opera to Broadway, this seems like the next inevitable step. What do you think? Want to see an “American Idiot” film? Or should Green Day go back to recording actual punk records?
