The Guardian reports that Michelle Williams will star in the biopic of rock legend Janis Joplin. Now the actress is negotiating the details of her contract with the studio. The film will be co-written by Sean Durkin, author of Martha, Marcy May, Marlene, When Mary Was Last Seen and Southcliff.

The script will be based on the book "With Love, Janice", compiled by the sister of the singer Laura based on their correspondence. She talks about Janice Joplin's life from the time she was a teenager to her triumph at Woodstock and her unexpected popularity, describes the difficult experiences and problems that the singer had to face. Our author Alisa Taezhnaya told about the tragic fate of Janice, who had fought for freedom and happiness all her life, but could not get rid of loneliness.

About when Durkin plans to start filming and when to wait for the release of the film, nothing is known yet. In the near future, Williams can be seen in the drama "Manchester by the Sea", which is considered one of the main contenders for the upcoming "Oscar", the drama "Some Women", which also starred Kristen Stewart and Laura Dern, and the musical "Earth's Greatest Showman" …

Canadian director Jean-Marc Vallee also plans to shoot a film about the life of Janis Joplin in the near future: Amy Adams is supposed to star in the film "Get It While You Can", which tells about a day in the life of a star, but so far filming has been postponed due to legal problems.
