Singleton Helms “Belushi Is Dead”

“Because of Winn-Dixie” producers Joan Singleton and Ralph S. Singleton have acquired the film rights to Kathy Charles’ novel “John Belushi Is Dead” reports Variety.

The story follows a pair of loners, Hilda and Benji, who comb the Los Angeles streets checking out the city’s most notorious crime scenes involving celebrity death, murder or suicide including James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Sharon Tate and Belushi of course.

When Hilda befriends reclusive Echo Park tenant Hank, his downstairs neighbor hints that Hank has some terrible secrets to hide. The Singleton’s will adapt the script and produce the film but no director or studio is yet attached.
