AMERICAN IDIOT: THE MOVIE?
Broadway just a few hours ago. And now I've read that Tom Hanks is considering adapting the story for the silver screen. Well, I guess it worked for ABBA's Mamma Mia. Well, Mr. Hanks will probably do the story justice. He definitely "gets" rock and roll. I never saw That Thing You Do, which he produced, but it was based on The Dave Clark 5, and his speech about them when they got into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year sold me on his rock and roll credentials. He was also one of the producers of this summer's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame anniversary concert, and he was part of the Monty Python performance at George Harrison's tribute concert earlier this decade.
