American rockers Green Day have rubbished claims they will star in the movie adaptation of their award-winning album "American Idiot"
American rockers Green Day obviously denied recent rumors claiming they will star in the movie adaptation inspired by their award-winning album "American Idiot." However, the band will help producing and scripting instead.
Frontman Billy Joe Armstrong says "I'm going to be involved in some of the writing and production for the movie, which will be like a mix of The Who's albums and films, Tommy and Quadrophenia. You won't see us appearing in starring roles because we're not actors. We will leave that to the professionals."
In related news, Green Day is reported to lead the nominations for the Radio Music Awards, having been named in eight categories. "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" is one of their singles that is nominated for Song Of The Year on Mainstream Hit Radio. The awards ceremony is set to take place in Las Vegas, in December.
