Emile Hirsch to Play John Belushi In Biopic!!!

Hi, Bryan Here…..


It’s confirmed. Emile Hirsch has been cast as John Belushi in the untitled biopic from Steve Conrad.  This is HUGE news. I would have never guessed this in a million years. I guess Emile is going to put on some weight, but I do think he is an amazing actor, and can pull this off. Conrad wrote the script as well.

The film will center around the height of his career from ‘Animal House‘, ‘The Blues Brothers‘, and his time on SNL. It will even cover his death.  Alexandra Milchan, Bonnie Timmermann, Film 360′s Scott Lambert,  and Judy Belushi Pisano are producing.


Emile Hirsch was Speed Racer in ‘Speed Racer‘, and the star of ‘The Girl Next Door‘. He was recently seen in ‘Killer Joe‘. This is a big first for Steve Conrad as he is usually on the writing side of things. He wrote ‘Pursuit of Happyness‘ for Will Smith and the upcoming ‘Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ for Ben Stiller. I’m excited for this.

Movie Quotes

Home was a condo on the fifteenth floor of a filing cabinet for widows and young professionals. The walls were solid concrete. A foot of concrete is important when your next-door neighbor lets their hearing aid go and have to watch game-shows at full volume. Or when a volcanic blast of debris that used to be your furniture and personal effects blows out of your floor-to-ceiling windows and sails flaming into the night. I suppose these things happen.
