Patti Smith and John Logan are collaborating on a spec script based on Smith’s own memoir, “Just Kids,” an intimate book that chronicled Smith’s relationship with seminal American artist Robert Mapplethorpe. Smith has never written a feature film, but the punk singer has a long history in writing poetry and her own lyrics and the actual book, so she’ll likely do just fine with the material. Logan is an Oscar-winning screenwriter who has big stuff under his belt, like The Aviator and Rango, along with upcoming films Hugo, Bond 23, and Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln. Though the film doesn’t have distribution set up, the star power of the screenwriting pair combined with the National Book Award-winning memoir should make it easy for the film to find a home. And that’s not to mention the fact that a “Just Kids” film is exactly what all the pot-smoking hipsters of the world have likely been whining for while drinking their PBRs on the blackest of Brooklyn nights. It’s a great book to read while you’re waiting for your next game of pick-up dodgeball or whatever. And, for all the hipster digs that may be easy to take at the book, it’s a fairly wonderful examination of both friendship and art.
