LATEST: American rockers Green Day have rubbished claims they will star in the movie adaptation of their award-winning album AMERICAN IDIOT.

Frontman BILLY JOE ARMSTRONG confirms the Holiday hitmakers will be taking a central role producing and scripting the film, but insist actors will depict them.

He 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."

Argh!! The first thing I noticed in this article was that people have fckd up Billie Joe's name again. Morons. But only obsessive fans will know and care about that. Anyway, I appriciate that the band knows their job is music and aren't going to go about like a lot of other musicians who will remain nameless, who believe that it's their right to do both. Choice yes, Right no. Anyway, shame in this case cause Green Day rule and it would be great to see them in a different light. After all it is their thoughts going into it so seeing how they express it would have been a good show.
