Patti Smith’s “Just Kids” Adapted to Screen Play

Film & Animation / Music / August 19, 2011

Patti Smith and the late Robert Mapplethorpe

National Book Award winner and rock star royalty Patti Smith has garnered much acclaim for her memoir Just Kids, a book about Smith’s life during the birth of punk rock, her relationship with the late photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, and famous relationships with musicians and art legends Bob Dylan and Andy Warhol.

So it’s not surprising to hear that following today’s trend of books-turned-movies, she is adapting her work into a screen play.

Smith has partnered with Tony Award- winning playwright John Logan to create the screenplay that features glimpses of the iconoclastic author’s rock n’ roll lifestyle during the 60’s and 70’s.

Serving as a thoughtful portrait of Smith, the story of Just Kids has the making of a truly inspired and provocative film that will be a sure fire hit.
