Amy Adams For Joplin Biopic?

Amy Adams is set to portray Janis Joplin in a new movie.

The pretty actress - who recently finished filming on 'The Fighter', where she plays the love interest of a boxer - has apparently signed up to play the late rock chick in a new movie based around her turbulent life.

According to 'Twilight Saga' producer Wyck Godfrey, his business partner Marty Bowen is preparing to work with the 'Doubt' starlet on the new movie.

He told Fearnet.com: "We have a couple of films that'll probably go that he'll be overseeing; one's a Fernando Meirelles Janis Joplin movie with Amy Adams playing Janis Joplin."

There have been several planned movies based on the tragic singer - who died from a heroin overdose in 1970 aged just 27 - but the projects all failed to be finalised.

Over the years actresses including Renee Zellweger, Melissa Etheridge, Courtney Love, Brittany Murphy, Lindsay Lohan, Scarlett Johansson and Pink have all been linked to big-screen portrayals of Janis.
