It’s been a long time coming (so long, in fact, that the whole thing became a running joke on the late 30 Rock), but the Janis Joplin biopic starring Amy Adams is finally about to become a real thing. Get It While You Can is set to film in the second half of 2015 in Los Angeles and San Fran.

Amy Adams to play Janis Joplin? Well, it's not Jenna Maroney, but good enough.

Now, biopics can be really hit-and-miss as we’ve seen in the past year, but something that works in this one’s favour is the directing choice – Get It While You Can could be helmed by Dallas Buyers Club director Jean-Marc Vallée. Vallee is currently in talks to direct the flick, but it’s been a long winding road getting to this point. Back in 2013, Lee Daniels was slated to direct the flick. Over the years, has had Fernando Meirelles and Catherine Hardwicke attached as directors, Renee Zellweger as star and Temple Hill as producers.

As for studio info, the independently financed movie is yet to announce its studio home. Last year, The Hollywood Reporter cited Focus Features as a possibility, but no deal was made then. Get It While You Can is one of many Joplin biopics that have been in various stages of production over the past decade. For close to 15 years, producer Peter Newman has been attempting to make a film simply titled Joplin, with a screenplay by former Rolling Stone contributor David Dalton, and, in 2012, he'd cast Tony Award–winning actress Nina Arianda in the lead role.
