Renee Shelves Joplin Film
RENEE ZELLWEGER's planned JANIS JOPLIN biopic has been shelved because producers can't decide on a script.
The COLD MOUNTAIN star is still desperate to star as the tragic rock singer, but she admits the project isn't likely to roll in the near future.
She says, "We talked about that a couple of years ago, developing a script and seeing if it is good enough.
"She is an exceptional woman and it needs to be an exceptional script to tell her story in a responsible way to have her story told the way it needs to be told. And that takes time.
"If I am ultimately the person to do it, then great. We are in the stage of developing it and pulling it together. For now, I've got no start date and I am not getting in a make-up chair any time soon."
A rival project, starring pop superstar PINK as Joplin, is also in the works.22/10/2004 02:14
