Todd Phillips Takes On John Belushi Biopic

| Filed under: Film Flickers


Although he passed away tragically of a drug overdose in 1982, John Belushi is coming back to the big screen

The Hangover producer/director Todd Phillips and The Pursuit of Happyness screenwriter Steven Conrad are developing a biographical film about Belushi's life.

Phillips has agreed to produce after Warner Bros. acquired the rights from Belushi's family. John's widow, Judith Belushi Pisano, who wrote her own book in 2005, Belushi: A Biography, will serve as an executive producer.

It is not known whether prominent figures in his life will be portrayed in the film, such as Dan Aykroyd, Lorne Michaels and Chevy Chase.

    Why don't you put what web site you pinched this info from FAT ASS? Afraid people will discover you don't really know the news, you just pull it from everywhere else? You're such a coward! And you're a fat Mario! REAL FAT!

    Yay!!! I love John!

    Artie Lange. He has the look, the chops and the baggage to make this movie. It may save his life.

    I agree that Artie could play the lead role, but he probably can't keep his shiz together long enough to finish the production. There's no way anyone underwriting that film would take a risk on Artie. I love the guy and wish him well. I hope he's well on the road to recovery.

    I don't know if they can seriously pull this off but best of luck to them. Would love to check it out if they casted this right.

    Wasn't this already a movie? I seem to remember "Wired" starring Michael Chiklis was a Belushi bio. This just smells sorta like a way to make some quick cash from a younger generation who don't know who he is.
