LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Hollywood director says she's working with actor John Cusack on a movie about conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.
Director Betty Thomas said Cusack's production company has a script ready that will star the actor as Limbaugh. It's not typecasting: Cusack is an outspoken liberal.
Production is set for next year, Thomas said. The working title is "Rush," Cusack's New Crime Productions confirmed Friday.

What do liberals know about Rush Limbaugh that's honest? Nothing.
Mr. Better Off Dead still stiffing the paperboy.
Will liberals want to see a movie about Rush at all? No.
Looks like a winner. Spend as much of your own money on it as you can, Cusack.
This will go over as well as when Henry Winkler tried it back in the 1990s. Don’t remember that? That’s all you need to know.
Oh you know, they’ll hit the stereotypes....fat, sexist, racist, hypocrite et al Then they’ll dwell on the Rx drugs, multiple marriages . . . won’t be hard for them to make anything up since Rush is a public figure
I want my two dollars!
A hit piece no doubt
The Left loves making these dogs, that nobody goes to see.
Their hope is that they’ll eventually be aired on cable hundreds of times, and ultimately be watched by ten people.
I think they’re being overly optimistic.
Yep, who is the audience? I won’t be watching them. The Left won’t want to.
Of course they WILL win plenty of awards...
Actually, Cusack is one of my favorite actors. This intrigues me. My guess is he will probably try a “Citizen Kane” type approach to portraying Limbaugh. Cusack is aging and probably is having trouble finding his typical romanic comedy roles. He knows he has to try something different for his career to survive.
If John Cusack makes a movie and no one sees it, is it a hit piece?
"Go that way, really fast. If something gets in your way... turn."
I haven’t been to a theater in...... probably 20 years. Between the price of a ticket, noisy brat teens and lousy offerings, it’s just not worth it.
“This mountain is pure snow. Do you realize the street value of this mountain?!?!”
What better way for an actor to get back in the game than to trash conservatives?
Citizen Cane rofl....it will be a hit piece from start to finish. Bank it.
I’m not even certain who he is. lol
Rush is the reason why I’m such a staunch Conservative.
And who introduced me to him.. at the young age of 14? Diane Sawyer! LOL!
It was an attempted hit piece. She called Rush “The most dangerous man in America”
As a young kid I thought.. wow that sounds pretty cool. So I bought Rush’s books and I have never been the same since.
