Michelle Williams in Talks for Janis Joplin Biopic

By Evonne Ermey

Guess who’s in talks to join the 27 Club! Michelle Williams.

That’s right, the My Week with Marilyn star may be trading in her platinum pixie for Janis’ unruly mop. She’s been in some serious talks with producers for Janis, a biopic that will focus on the last six months of  the troubled singer’s life.

Hollywood has been fishing for it’s Pearl for a long time – Amy Adams, Renee Zellweger, and Zooey Deschenel have all been linked to Janis biopics that can’t seem to get off the ground.

If all comes to fruition, we can’t wait to see the transformation. Williams as the velvet clad, whiskey warbler would truly be a 180, but Williams has acting chops out the wazoo and we’re sure she’ll slay.
