John Belushi Biopic Back In The Works
So many years ago, a Todd Phillips directed John Belushi biopic was in the works. And like many other project in Hollywood, fell into limbo.
Podaholics is happy to report that The Secret Life of Walter Mitty writer Steve Conrad, who was originally signed to write the Phillips pic, now has plans to direct the project himself as an indie. Conrad is currently working on finding his Belushi, having met with Emile Hirsch and Workaholics’ Adam Devine. Supposedly Joaquin Phoenix’s name is also in the mix, according to reports. The audition consists of a ‘Cinderella style’ trying on of a bee costume, if it fits, you were born to play Belushi.
