It is reported that Green Day are considering turning their new concept album 'American Idiot' into a film.

"We've definitely been talking about someone writing a script for it, and there's been a few different names that have been thrown at us," singer Billie Joe Armstrong told MTV. "It sounds really exciting, but for right now it's just talk."

Armstrong joked that just as The Who had cast musicians in the film version of 'Tommy', Green Day would have to cast members of Rancid and Good Charlotte in the lead roles.

Green Day are also considering compiling a documentary about the making of 'American Idiot', which was released on Monday.
