Love it or hate it, Green Day‘s “American Idiot” has sold over 14 million copies worldwide. It has become a broadway musical, and in the not too distant future it will also be coming to a theater near you. That’s right, Green Day is hitting the silver screen. You can find a few details here.
For those who can’t be bothered to click over, the film will be directed by stage director Michael Mayer, and will be released by Tom Hanks’ Playtone Productions sometime in 2013. Green Day singer and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong will reprise his role as St. Jimmy.
Green Day are currently working on new music to follow up 2009’s “21st Century Breakdown”.
