Patti Smith to Collaborate on ‘Just Kids’ Screenplay

National Book Award winning author and rock star Patti Smith will work with Tony Award winning playwright John Logan on an adaptation of her memoir, Just Kids.

Logan has worked on a number of film scripts, including Gladiator, The Aviator, Sweeney Todd, and Rango. The book followed Smith’s relationship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, exploring the New York City music and art scene during two tumultuous decades.

Here’s more from the release: “Currently in its thirty-seventh week on the New York Times bestseller list, Just Kids has also been translated into twenty-seven languages. Patti Smith is a writer, performer, and visual artist. She gained recognition in the 1970s for her revolutionary mergence of poetry and rock, and for her seminal album Horses. She is presently recording her thirteenth album for a 2012 release. In 2005, the French Ministry of Culture awarded Smith the prestigious title of Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres. In 2007, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.”
