John Belushi Documentary In The Works

John Belushi

(The Blues) The first authorized documentary about the life of the late John Belushi will begin production later this year. It'll be directed by RJ Cutler and produced by John Battsek after the pair secured permission from Belushi's widow Judith Belushi Pisano.

The film will feature photographs from Pisano's personal collection and is the first time she's agreed to cooperate on a movie about the Blues Brothers icon.

Cutler tells Rolling Stone: "Belushi was one of my very first heroes. At a time when film, television and music were undergoing tectonic shifts within American culture, he was at the centre of it all.

"At that moment, he had the number one show on television, the number one film at the box office and the number one record on the charts. We plan to explore his unique genius and how his creative influence is still making an impact to this moment." Read more here.
