Since Rock Legend Janis Joplin Died at 27, Producers Have Spent Millions to Make a Movie About Her - and Its Finally Happening - by Jason Guerrasio/ Entertainment/ Business Insider/ businessinsider.com

"In an era when rock and roll was dominated by the likes of the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin broke through as one of the top female singers of the 1960s with her potent, soulful vocals and relatable personality.

Though, on the surface, Joplin inspired millions of female fans with her independent style and ferociously confident stage presence, offstage the singer used her hard partying to mask an aching desire to find a companion. A heroin overdose led to her death at the age of 27 in 1970.

The meteoric rise and all-too-young death of Joplin were ripe for the Hollywood treatment. Yet somehow, 45 years after her passing, a biopic still hasn’t been made about the artist.

But it’s not due to a lack of trying..."

Bette Midler's "The Rose" should count for something. It's not as though nobody tried to make a movie about her.

There have been a couple of documentaries. Festival Express where she traveled across Canada by train with Grateful Dead and The Band. The Way She Was, mostly concert footage.

They have to find someone with her talent to play her. Janis was unique!

Thanks for resurrecting Janis.....I picked up her greatest hits CD while out and about yesterday. It replaces the CD that went missing a few years ago.
