"American Idiot"? Try American Genius!

10/31/2006 5:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

graphic of a question markI heard a long time ago that Green Day was planning on turning "American Idiot" into a movie. Is that still happening?

Green DayMelody, people have been very quiet about this could-be movie for a while, but it seems as though it will in fact come into fruition.

With ideas for the flick pouring in, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong confirmed to MTV in an interview over the summer that "it's definitely going to happen." But don't expect to see the band members on screen -- they're leaving that to the professionals.

Michelle RodriguezAthena, Michelle Rodriguez is definitely making the most of her free time since getting the boot from "Lost." She is set to star in the flick "Battle in Seattle" with Charlize Theron, but we won't be able to catch that until 2008. When she's not filming, Rodriguez can be found working alongside Dara Young, her business partner for the clothing line Ishkadada.

To read more about her clothing line and to check out her website, take a look at this.

CiaraIt's your lucky day, Azucena -- you and Ciara did attend the same high school! Riverdale High in Riverdale, Georgia is something the two of you will always have in common.

The singing sensation, who recently turned 21, will be releasing her second album titled "Ciara: The Evolution," where she will be giving the world "music to dance to." Expect this follow-up to the "Goodies" album next month. For more music streaming out of Georgia, check this out.

Jennifer AnistonDee, the initial screening for Jennifer Aniston's directorial debut took place on October 16. Calling the shots has been something Jen has been itching to do for years, and, well, she finally got a stab at it. While you shouldn't expect to see this short film in theaters (at least for the remainder of this year), Glamour magazine's web site will have "Room 10" available for viewing in the next couple of months.

graphic of a question markWhat are the boys of Linkin Park up to?

Linkin ParkMarina, the Linkin Park boys have been creating so many tracks that they can't pin down a date for the release of their upcoming album. The band originally anticipated to release it by the end of this year, but now it looks like L.P. fans will have to wait until 2007. Besides still having to come up with a name for the album, the guys have to make their final cuts on more than 100 songs they've created, although they say they've narrowed it down to a list they're becoming comfortable with. So stay tuned for an exact release date. This is an album you won't want to miss out on.

For a band on the opposite side of the creative spectrum, you must take a look at this.

Greenday sux. They hate Americans and should definitely go live in Canada. I'm sick of Millionaires bashing our President and our Country. I didn't see Billyjo in New Orleans after Katrina, did you? BASTARD! Kanye West, Rosie O, Dixie chix and Greenday should be happy for what they got and realize that our country is great ! You should always respect your President and your Country!

um actually shannon green day did a benefit song with U2 for katrina and everyone is entitled to their opinion and personally i like green day, they are very good live and actually voice their opinion unlike some other artists who hide behind metaphors or just sing about sappy cliche things

Actually, they aren't sellouts...think about it...every band has the same dream: to make it big. Look at all the bands out there who have become big...they try different things with every album. Just because Green Day tried something new and different and became huge doesn't mean they are sellouts...no band because popular overnight and if you look at the bands out there, not all of the albums sound EXACTLY the same...Green Day tried something new and fortunately for them, it earned them more Grammies, awards, and recognition then anyone here will ever receive...
