Cameron Crowe Making Joni Mitchell Movie

It’s been a quiet few years for Cameron Crowe in terms of narrative output on big or small screens. Though he had a great run from the time he wrote ‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High’ (based on his own experiences going undercover at a high school), and created the hit movies ‘Say Anything’, ‘Singles’, ‘Jerry Maguire’, ‘Almost Famous’ and ‘Vanilla Sky’, he saw his most recent movie, ‘Aloha’ fail to connect with audiences and criticized for some dodgy racial elements (Emma Stone as a native Hawaiian just didn’t fly), and on TV, his Showtime series ‘Roadies’ (which trod similar ground to ‘Almost Famous’ but in the present day as opposed to the 1970s) was cancelled after one season.
