Jerry Garcia Biopic in Motion

Earlier this week in our blog, The Loop, we shared news that actress Amy Adams will appear as Janis Joplin in a feature film about the musician. Today Variety is reporting that a Jerry Garcia film is moving forward. Amir Bar-Lev, director of the documentaries My Kid Could Paint That and The Tillman Story has signed on for the project written by Topper Lilien (whose last credited film was Dungeons & Dragons in 2000). The script is based in part on Robert Greenfield’s Dark Star an oral-history of the guitarist.

The question of course, is who should play Garcia? Why not weigh in with your thoughts in our blog.
