It has just been announced on HollywoodReporter.com that Billie Joe Armstrong (or rather "Billy") will be reprising his role as St. Jimmy from the American Idiot Musical to the upcoming American Idiot movie. (Update at the end of this post)

"Director Michael Mayer of the stage version will direct the movie, while Billy Joe Armstrong will reprise his Broadway role as St. Jimmy in the movie version. "

The article also mentions that the movie is due in 2013.

This is pretty exciting news considering many people did not believe that Billie Joe would play a part in the movie. After blowing us away acting in the staged version of American Idiot, who knows what we can expect from Billie Joe on the big-screen.

In the past Billie has played special guest roles in two TV shows, The Chis Isaak Show (2002) and Haunted (2002), but this will be the first time Billie will play a role in a movie.

Thanks to Jaymee!! for posting this on our forum.

Update June 17: Billie Joe has posted about this on twitter, saying that he has not yet committed to the project,

"Haven't totally committed to St Jimmy for AI movie. Yes, I'm interested. Yes someone jumped the gun.."
