    'Martha Marcy May Marlene' Director Sean Durkin To Helm 'Joplin' Biopic With Tony Winner Nina Arianda In The Lead Role

    Of all the long-developing music biopics out there in the world, a movie about Janis Joplin nearly tops the list of much dicussed, but unmade projects. Before Fernando Meirelles made "360," he was linked to a version that would've starred Amy Adams and been produced by Wyck Godfrey of ...
