A feature-length documentary about the very wild life of the iconic American comedian John Belushi will soon go into production.

Directed by RJ Cutler and produced by John Battsek, it’s being made by the American cable channel Showtime, which is also responsible for the likes of Dexter, Homeland and Californication. Sky’s premium UK channel Sky Atlantic is also involved with the project.

Producers have managed to get the comedian’s widow Judith Belushi Pisano on board – the first time she’s authorise or agree to cooperate with a documentary concerning her late husband, the star of cult classics like The Blues Brothers and Animal House.

“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,” said Cutler in a statement. “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.”

Battsek added: “This is a film I have wanted to make for many years as John was a great hero of mine. Having Judy cooperation for the first time on a feature documentary of his life is very special and means we know we will be making a truly authentic film.

“We plan to assemble a deep and three-dimensional look into the life of a man of great complexity and talent who went on to become an American comedic icon.”

A biopic on Belushi, who died in 1982 at the age of 33 after an overdose of cocaine and heroin, was announced by the comedian’s close friend Dan Ackroyd in 2013. It had been due to star Emile Hirsch, but the project is believed to have stalled.
