Another Book Hits the Big Screen
Patti Smith's, Just Kids is Headed for Hollywood

Patti Smith, the Bohemian Queen, is adapting her memoir, Just Kids for the big screen. The book was released two-years ago and there’s been nothing but buzz about the roles of Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe (Smith’s partner) since the project was first announced.

Apparently, Ms. Smith has a pair of leads in mind and her choices might just surprise you – Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. But, don’t judge, her reasoning is pretty spot on.  Stewart is "not conventionally beautiful," and Pattinson is "a bit shy, and a bit stoic."

So, who else is in the running? She mentions Mia Wasikowska, and even suggests Saoirse Ronan.  As for Mapplethorpe, we think James Franco could be a sweet match.
