Ellen Page to Play John Belushi’s Wife in Upcoming Biopic?
Ellen Page to Play John Belushi’s Wife?
Earlier today Empire Online reported that Juno star Ellen Page was in early negotiations to play none other than John Belushi’s wife, Judith Jacklin, in the forthcoming Biopic of the Animal House comedian.
Jacklin who met and dated Belushi at high school, before eventually marrying him in 1972 was naturally left devastated by his early death in 1982, aged just 33.
With Emile Hirsch already locked in to play the Blue Brothers star, Steve Conrad in the writer/directors chair, Judy Belushi-Pisano (as she is now known) and Belushi’s old friend and colleague Dan Aykroyd involved as producers the film is certainly gaining promise.
Shooting is scheduled to begin in New York later this year.
