    Hello folks, I'd like to introduce you to your new moderator: @Todd. You may recognize him most from the GD downloads section but in the background he has been active in our team discussions. Due to his consistent activities we decided we should give him full moderator powers. He has been a media mod since May of 2015. Congrats to being more orange buddy!

    (most of the info about the movie is from iMDBpro) SUMMARY The music of Green Day weaves in and out of a story about three friends who grew up together in the same small town. I was putting this in RGDN thread but decided this will probably be talked about until the day it's released and for probably a long time after so thought it was deserving of a thread. I am almost certain that you fanatics know all the info that I am going to put in here and probably forever ago but I'll be getting new info as it comes and I thought I would put a repository of info and have a place to put new info as it comes out. Again, I don't know how much of this is new news to you guys because you follow everything but Green Day are deep into development of the Tom Hanks produced (along with all the boys getting a producer credit) and a 5 time Emmy award winner by the name of Gary Goetzman (who is a legend out here in Los Angeles, he was the Executive Producer of Silence of the Lambs). So Producers: Billie Joe Armstrong Mike Dirnt Tre' Cool Gary Goetzman Tom Hanks (he bought the option on his massively successful PlayTone years ago during the American Idiot Broadway run). It is being produced for the small screen but for HBO which is cinema for TV for the uninitiated. It's budget is huge for a TV movie. It's almost a sin to call it a TV movie as "it's not TV, it's HBO". I almost said that without thinking of their tag. Lol. Writers: Billie Joe Armstrong (music book) Michael Mayer (music book) Dustin Lance Black (screenplay) - probably best known for "Milk" Billie is slated to play St. Jimmy. There is no release date scheduled at the moment. The screenplay is in rewrites. Here is what I found SO interesting and I am SURE that you guys must know this because after I heard it, I came home and found a ton of info on it and GDA was sited as a source on many Twitter hashtags so I am assuming you guys know this but outside of the USA, I don't know if people know how cool what I'm about to drop is and God I hope it happens. I am a HUGE fan of Hamilton (I know, who isn't?) but I have seen it 6 times now. 2 in NY and 4 in LA and recently I was lucky enough to speak to Lin Manuel Miranda and found out he is a HUGE fan of Green Day and he loves American Idiot musical and Tom Kitt. I didn't want to geek out on him more than I already was so I didn't dive too far into it but came home and scoured the net and found a wealth of info. When he heard about the adaptation he immediately took to Twitter and... http://news.radio.com/2016/10/06/lin-manuel-miranda-green-day-movie/ (first, an old Twitter post from him when In The Heights (his first Broadway show) came out and by the time 2016 rolled around, Hamilton was a smash hit that has redefined Broadway in every way a play/musical can. On finding out it was green lit: (Now, understand, THE ENTIRE world is after LMM right now). Even Disney. He wrote the soundtrack to Moana. He wrote the Cantina music for JJ Abrams "The Force Awakens" when JJ was at a showing of Hamilton and he said jokingly "hey if you need any Cantina music, I'm your guy", and JJ said "I DO NEED some cantina music". This might be lost on non Star Wars fans (I mean old school ones). He also has more tweets about going to Green Day show after becoming a fan during the musical run. So why am I telling you all this? Well apparently he wants in and if he was AT ALL involved, the spectacle would be huge. He is pretty much the prodigy, genius, creative entity of the entire world right now. Hamilton is running in 5 cities and is currently about to open at Victoria Palace Theater in London so look for a West End production of it there and it's about the Revolutionary War. I'll be there in December to catch hopefully the opening night but if not, the opening week. Expect tickets to be unattainable. I am dying to see it in London since it's about the American Revolution. Here are a couple tid bits from Hamilton: It all started about 9 years ago when he was invited to the White House Poetry Jam when the WH was full of cool mother fuckers instead of Trump mother fucker. He was asked to perform a song from In The Heights (his first and a massive success in its own right but he did this, a song about a now well known founding father of the US, Alexander Hamilton who he says "embodies Hip Hop". A self starter who came from nothing and made a name for himself through grit and grime. I'm about to annoy everyone that wants to hear only about Green Day but when I found out that LMM wanted to be a part of a Green Day film, my two favorite things in the world converged and I got juiced. Ok, I'll leave it at that. As I hear stuff, I will post it here. There is nothing in this that can't be found on the net but I promise I will post stuff as it comes out. I don't know right now how this will effect the recording of the next album. The word is that they want to drop the next one before the film for a few reasons, most of them promotional but it all depends on the time frame. Even though it's deep into production, the making of a movie is an arduous process that can take years sometimes (but once it's rolling, and it is, it tends to speed up). For sure, the long part of the wait is over. Now if LMM is in it, it would be sick. I could think of several roles for him to play. And not for nothing, their hatred of Trump is equally matched. LMM is from NYC but his parents are native Puerto Ricans and this is what he said of Trump when he questioned the mayor during the current crisis caused by the storm which so plays into the song "Hurricane" from Hamilton. Here is the chronology of where we are right now on AI THE MUTTA FUGGIN FILM! Mar 23, 2010 Optioned (again by Tom Hank's PlayTone) Apr 13, 2011 Treatment (a treatment is a short story version of the long form script) Scripting Oct 16, 2011 Script May 2, 2012 Nov 26, 2012 Development Unknown May 16, 2013 Dec 4, 2013 Jun 11, 2014 Dec 13, 2014 Jul 8, 2015 Jan 11, 2016 Jul 19, 2016 Jan 20, 2017 Oct 17, 2017 Full Green Light from HBO ***** Sorry this was so Hamilton heavy and that you guys were hoping for more info than this but there is no more. This is it right now. There is lots to come real soon though and I will post it in this thread as it comes. Please, if you know something I haven't posted, please do. In the meantime, this thread can chill but we will have an AI film for sure and I'll keep updates in here no matter if this thread sinks or not. Yeah boy!

    Man, if I were in Green Day and read some of the entitlement on this forum, I'd probably want to hide my new music too.

    On New Year's eve, people could call a local radio station here and ask for songs to play. I demanded Back in the USA and they played it. What a great way to start 2018

    So cool! Listen with headphones. It sounds like you’re in the room with them. They soundcheck and rehearse loads of songs including 99 Revolutions, Private Ale, Stuart and the Ave, and a couple of Op Ivy/Rancid with Tim Armstrong. Some funny chat too. https://m.soundcloud.com/nameloc01/green-day-cleveland-oh-41615-hob-soundcheck

    Since this time last year, so many fans have lost artists they love, often much too soon. I know it’s not the same as losing someone you know personally, but when it comes to the musicians who have influenced us and stuck by us in our darkest times, I can’t imagine how painful it must be to lose them. Such losses have reminded me to be present and grateful for the fact that my favorite band exists on this earth the same time as me. Still breathing. Still alive. This dude has influenced me so deeply and adds so much to my life. Whether he’s writing how I feel in song or posting a goofy dad joke on social media, Billie has given me so much happiness. He makes me proud to be a Green Day fan. Happy Birthday, old man. Thank you for being my favorite human. I kinda adore you.

    I really don’t understand how anyone can be conservative/a Trump supporter and like Green Day. Or at the very least, be surprised or offended when the band bashes him. Did you not know what you signed up for? Cognitive dissonance much? It’s not like their viewpoints are something new or not reflected heavily now in their music. I don’t get how you could really enjoy it if it conflicts with what you apparently believe.
