American Idiot Coming to the Big Screen?

It has yet to open on Broadway, but it may already be in preparations to transfer to the big screen.  Tom Hanks' production company Playtone is in talks to option the piece for the potential transfer.

The production company gave Mamma Mia! the silver screen treatment in 2008 and grossed over $610,000,000 worldwide.  American Idiot includes the songs Boulevard of Broken Dreams and Wake Me Up When September Ends, and the show follows a new generation of young Americans looking for meaning in a post 9/11 world.

The stage version of the show begins previews at the Saint James Theatre on March 24th with an opening date set for April 20th.
