Miles Teller (“The Spectacular Now,” “Whiplash”) is set to play Dan Aykroyd opposite Emile Hirsch as John Belushi in Steve Conrad’s upcoming Belushi biopic.
Hirsch made the announcement at a party on Saturday night, saying: “A shout-out to Miles Teller. We’re going to be working together soon. He’s playing Dan Aykroyd in the Belushi movie.”
CAA quickly followed that up, saying Teller does have the offer but won’t commit to a new project until he wraps “That Awkward Moment” press commitments in a few weeks.
Aykroyd himself is executive producing the project.
