A Billy Joel biopic could be coming soon. Just don’t expect to hear any of the musician’s songs.
The working title for the movie is called “Piano Man” (of course), but so far that is about all there is as far as likeness to Joel.
No rights to Joel’s music, likeness, and even NAME have been acquired for this film.
Joel’s rep confirmed to Variety that the singer has no intention to hand over any of these rights any time soon.
So…as of right now, it’s just a movie about a guy who may or may not play the piano. Gotcha.
Do you think an unofficial Billy Joel biopic would still be good without the music? Are there any artists that you would like to see get their own film?
