Billie Joe Armstrong is not only out of rehab and back in action; he's getting back into theater. The Green Day front man is set to write some songs for Yale Repertory Theater's upcoming rockified version of Much Ado About Nothing, These Paper Bullets. Along with the sonic revamp comes a London setting and a music industry-oriented plot. The show will premiere in March 2014.
