Amy Adams to star in Lee Daniels' Janis Joplin biopic

Lee Daniels' movie "The Butler" has just hit theaters, but the "Precious" director is already thinking about his next film. His follow-up project, Daniels told The Hollywood Reporter, is a biopic of Janis Joplin. And it will star none other than "American Hustle" actress Amy Adams. "Guess what? She can sing her a-- off!" Daniels said of his selection. He also opened up about the blues singer's tangled history. "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 faces a challenge with the film, however. The biopic has been on the books for a decade, without ever completing production. After the Joplin biopic, Daniels hopes to get an adaptation of "Miss Saigon" going. "And then," Daniels said. "I want to make a horror movie!"
