John Cusack to take on Rush Limbaugh film project

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Grosse Point Blank actor John Cusack is reportedly attached to a film which honors radio personality Rush Limbaugh.

According to Deadline, although the film is still in the early stages of being created, the actor's production company confirmed the news.

“New Crime Productions and John Cusack are currently considering a project about the larger-than-life radio personality, Rush Limbaugh. Betty Thomas, who covered similar terrain in her portrait of Howard Stern, is interested in directing. The script would 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 statement reads which was released Sunday.

Additionally, the film would take a non-partisan view of Limbaugh, a conservative who has opposite views of what Cusack believes.

Thus far, a script has not even been finished and no other actors have been reported as attached to the film.

Cusack recently starred in The Raven and has a variety of films he is currently working on including Grand Piano, Cell, Carnaval and The Butler.
