American Idiot is closing its Broadway run on April 24, but the Green Day musical is going Hollywood. Universal Pictures is currently in negotiations to turn the Tony-nominated hit into a feature film, according to Deadline.com. Stage director Michael Mayer will direct the proposed movie, with Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (Milk) attached to write the script.

According to the report, it is expected that Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong will revive his stage work as drug dealer St. Jimmy in the film.
