LEE DANIELS ALL SET FOR JANIS JOPLIN BIOPIC

Friday, August 23, 2013 - Moviemaker Lee Daniels will be throwing himself into his Janis Joplin biopic project as soon as he's completed promotional duties for his hit new film

The Butler.

The project has been bouncing around Hollywood for the past decade and now Daniels is determined to get started on it with his leading lady Amy Adams after studying tragic singer Joplin.

He tells The Hollywood Reporter, "This is my next project for sure. I had

no idea Janis Joplin was so smart - intellectual, even."

And he's convinced he's got the right leading lady to portray the boozy blues singer, in Adams.

Daniels adds, "She can sing her a** off."
