John Cusack — actor, vocal liberal activist and occasional Huffington Post blogger — is developing a movie about conservative radio show all-star Rush Limbaugh.

Cusack’s production company, New Crime Productions, told the Associated Press that the working title of the new film is “Rush.”

The unabashedly liberal star of movies like “Say Anything,” “Grosse Point Blank” and the anti-gun adaptation of the John Grisham novel “The Runaway Jury” will reportedly play the talk star in the film, set to begin filming next year.

Betty Thomas, director of “The Brady Bunch Movie,” “Private Parts,” “John Tucker Must Die” and “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel,” among other films, is also involved in the new project.

A harsh critic of President George W. Bush, Cusack has also criticized President Barack Obama — from the left.
