Ellen Page - Ellen Page In Talks To Play John Belushi's Wife In Film Biopic

Actress Ellen Page is reportedly in talks to take on the role of John Belushi's wife in an upcoming film biopic.

If she signs on, the Juno star will appear opposite Emile Hirsch as the late actor/comedian in a movie based on his widow Judy Belushi Pisano's book, Belushi.

The film, written and directed by The Secret Life of Walter Mitty scribe Steve Conrad, will document The Blues Brothers funnyman's rise to fame in the late 1970s.

Production on the project is slated to begin later this year (14) in New York, according to TheWrap.com.

Belushi died from a drug overdose in 1982, aged 33.
