Tom Hanks to Adapt Green Day's "American Idiot" Broadway Musical

Posted: March 23rd, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Tom Hanks to Adapt Green DaySubmit Comment
"American Idiot," based on the Green Day album is set to be released on Broadway on April 20th. But Tom Hanks is already considering turning the musical into a feature film.

"American Idiot" uses the songs of punk band Green Day to tell the coming of age story of three small-town guys. One joins the armed forces, another moves to the city and gets mired in a drug habit, the third stays home and gets his girlfriend pregnant. There is little dialogue beyond the Green Day tunes.

Hanks' Playtone production company last adapted the Abba musical "Mamma Mia!" for the big screen back in 2008 and went on to gross around $610 million in worldwide ticket sales, becoming one of the biggest hits in Universal Pictures history.

Other stage to film adaptations include "Wicked," "In the Heights" and "Rock of Ages."
