In 2010, Green Day delivered a theatrical rendition of their seventh studio album, American Idiot, to Broadway. Three years later, band is set to release a documentary chronicling their experience, entitled Broadway Idiot.
Rolling Stone has released an exclusive trailer on their website where fans can get a behind-the-scenes preview of Green Day while they rerecord their 2009 single, “21 Guns,” for use in the musical.
“When we started filming our documentary, we had amazing access inside the creative process of the Broadway team,” Doug Hamilton, the film's director, tells Rolling Stone. “But it wasn't until a few months later, when Billie Joe Armstrong opened up and invited us into the private recording studios of Green Day that we really got to see inside the process by which Billie Joe, Mike [Dirnt] and Tré [Cool] create the Green Day sound.”
Green Day fans can check out Broadway Idiot, directed by Michael Mayer, on October 11 in theaters and OnDemand. The film can also be pre-ordered now on iTunes.
