Yawn: John Cusack Developing Rush Limbaugh Biopic.

Well, at least it’s not Sean Penn behind it.

You don’t really need Rush’s permission to adapt his life story to the screen, as long as you stick to public records and known facts about him.  But I have the feeling that if Rush can lawfully stop this project from coming to fruition (and it’s quite possible that he could have that opportunity), he will.  Or at least he will make it more difficult and time-consuming than it would be otherwise…

UPDATE: Insta-lanche!  Thank you, Ed Driscoll (who links with an excellent idea).  And here’s some analysis from Christian Toto at Breitbart’s Big Hollywood.
