Janis Joplin Biopic Set to Film On Location in Frisco – “Get It While You Can” – And CA Taxpayers are Subsidizing Production, Yay!

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

Why on Gaia’s Green Earth should we pay Hollywood millions to make a Janis Joplin biopic on the streets of San Francisco? Well, that’s what we just did.

Like what, otherwise they’d film in Vancouver, Canada? Well, OK fine. If that’s the way you want to do it, Hollywood. Of course, your feature will look a lot better if you come to Noe Valley (aka “Upper Mission” as some called it, back in the day) and the 94117, but it’ll cost you big bucks, since SF is one of the most expensive places to shoot in the world.

But this tax giveaway makes things easier for you, I s’pose, oh well. (I don’t approve of this arrangement, obvs.)

Moving on.

To this, on this flick’s IMDb entry:

“I am a hard core Joplin fan, so of course I was really excited when I heard they where making a Biopic… that is until I found out they are casting Amy Adams as Janis. WTH? This is a joke right? Why would they disgrace Janis with this broad? I have seen Amy’s movies… She in no way can play this part. Surely they could think of someone else!?!? Dana Fuchs would have been a better choice, or even Gabby West. NOT Amy Adams. What a shame.”

Say hello to your new Janis Joplin:


Hey, what if it turns out that JANIS: Little Girl Blue or Janis (1974) , both of which didn’t cost us anything, not millions anyway, are much much better films? Mmm…

All right, get all the deets here.
