Green Day have finialized plans to turn their 2004 hit album ‘American Idiot‘ into a musical play. It will be directed by Michael Mayer who will be joined by choreographer Steven Hoggett and music supervisor Tom Kitt.
Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong commented on the musical:
"We’ve been working with Michael Mayer and the show’s creative team for quite some time, so we know how super-talented all of them are. Each and every one of these people has gone above and beyond for this show, and we can’t wait for our fans to see it."
Billie Joe also said he would like to see the album be turned into a feature film:
"I thought American Idiot had a lot in common with something like Rocky Horror Picture Show. It would be great to see a film made out of it someday too".
Green Day last released ‘21st Century Breakdown‘ this earlier this year.
