John Cusack is developing a biopic on Rush Limbaugh

Nov. 5, 2012by: Niki Stephens

Just last week, we heard that John Cusack was getting involved in an adaptation of Stephen King's novel, CELL. But wait, this isn't the only thing he has in the pipeline. He also plans to star in a film called DUE PROCESS.

The latest project he's got going on blows the previous two out of the water.

Cusack is developing a biopic on Rush Limbaugh, which is for now titled, RUSH. In addition to producing the pic under his New Crime banner, the actor will also take on the role of Limbaugh. This is going to be something to see.

Betty Thomas (PRIVATE PARTS) is attached to direct the film with the script almost near complete. Thomas already had her experience with an on-screen Limbaugh with PRIVATE PARTS. The story will, "explore the rise and reinvention of American Talk Radio, and Limbaugh's continued influence and impact over the last three decades in that world."

The project should begin production next year.

Unless it has some hard-hitting investigative journalism behind it, I'm not intersted. The only thing about Rush that would be interesting would be to find out where the money comes from to keep these hate mongers on the air. I've long since convinced myself that they don't believe their own words, but rather just spew the bile that they are paid to.

Last I remember...

No one cares what Rush has to say and no one sees Cusack movies anymore. Hmmm....this sounds like a match made in heaven.

Seriously, do we really need a biopic of Rush Limbaugh?
