By

Fred Armisen, Selma Blair, and Judy Greer are teaming up with Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong for a dramatic film. Variety reports that Armstrong will star in Geezer, a movie that follows “the mid-life crisis of a husband and father who, on his 40th birthday, decides to revisit his punk-rock past by throwing an extravagant party in the presidential suite of the Drake Hotel — where he encounters his beautiful ex-girlfriend and former bandmates who have since moved on to bigger and better things.” Other announced cast in Geezer includes Dallas Roberts, Chris Messina, and The Office’s Brian Baumgartner, with writer/director Lee Kirk (The Office, The Giant Mechanical Man) onboard to direct. “The initial seeds for Geezer were planted a couple of years ago, when my son was born within weeks of my fortieth birthday,” said Kirk in a statement. “Billie Joe Armstrong brings an exciting authenticity to the film. He’s a dad, he’s a musician and he’s an incredible talent.” Armstrong will write and perform new songs in the film – no word yet on whether or not we can expect a new single from Ian Rubbish as well.
