The long-discussed film adaptation of Green Day‘s American Idiot isn’t going to make it to the big screen.
Billie Joe Armstrong tells NME that plans for film adaptation, which were announced a few years ago, have now been “pretty much scrapped.” The band helped turn the 2004 album into a musical that debuted on Broadway in 2010, and Armstrong even acted in the show for part of its stage run.
Armstrong also disclosed a fun fact about that Broadway musical — Donald Trump actually turned up to opening night in New York. But he’s not sure if the two actually met. “Maybe I shook his hand?” Bassist Mike Dirnt chimed in: “You shook so many small hands that night!”
