But all you need to know about her tragic life -- she died at the age of 27 of a heroin overdose -- is right there in her voice, chronicled on just four albums during her lifetime: two with lumbering San Francisco blues-rockers Big Brother and the Holding Company and two as a solo artist.There's pain, joy and a sense that everything could come crash
The life of late vocalist Janis Joplin has been the subject of much discussion in Hollywood over the years, and it looks like a biopic on the singer will finally get made. According to the Hollywood Reporter, director Lee Daniels is in talks to oversee 'Get It While You Can,' with 'The Master' actress Amy Adams attached to star as the music icon.
It's taken producer Peter Newman over a decade to bring the sad final months of Janis Joplin's life to the big screen, but now it seems he'll get his chance. Deadline announced today that 'Joplin,' a film focused on the singer's last six months, will begin filming early next year and star Tony Award winning actress Nina Arianda.
