Stars such as Pink and Britney Spears have been named in the race to take the role of blues singer Janice Joplin in a new biopic.
Director Penelope Spheeris has already met with Pink, Lindsay Lohan and Zooey Deschanel in connection with The Gospel According to Janis, and is hoping to further meet with Scarlett Johansson.
Spheeris is quoted on Contactmusic.com as saying: “”[Pink] would be my first choice, but she may have scheduling conflicts.”
A spokesperson for Pink confirmed that “she would do just about anything to be part of that project!”
Regarding another interested party, Britney Spears, Spheeris said: “Her agent asked if I could meet with her. Music ability is important, but most of all, the actress must have the spirit of Janis.
“Each of the actresses who has expressed interest in the role [would] bring her own special talents to the part.”
