Crickets - Mike Dirnt of Green Day produces new movie

The bassist of Green Day, Mike Dirnt, to produce an independent film in collaboration with the band's manager, Pat Magnarella.

The film, written by Alfredo Botello, will be titled "Crickets", and tells the story of two distant brothers. One of them, comedian stand-up, discovers that he has terminal cancer and asks his brother, who works in an office, to present a concert in his place as a last request.

In May this year, Dirnt's wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, which became the bassist eager to get involved with the movie. "I was - and many people were - affected by the disease, and is associable something for everyone," said the musician.
