John Cusack Develops Rush Limbaugh Film

John Cusack is developing “Rush”, a potential starring vehicle for himself about right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh.

Cusack’s New Crime Productions will produce the project with Betty Thomas (“Private Parts”) attached to direct and a script near completion.

The liberal 46-year-old Cusack playing the portly 61-year-old conservative firebrand is a surprising choice, as is the use of Limbaugh himself for a biopic considering he isn’t really known outside of the United States (and thus the film won’t sell internationally).

Production is currently slated for next year.
