Tom Shadyac to direct Sam Kinison biopic.


Movie director Tom Shadyac has been very open about his religious beliefs, especially when promoting films like Bruce Almighty (2003) and Evan Almighty (2007).

And stand-up comic Sam Kinison, who died in 1992, was a Pentecostal preacher before he turned to comedy and became known for his deliberately sacrilegious routines.

So it will be interesting to see how Shadyac treats Kinison’s life story when he directs the HBO biopic Brother Sam: The Short, Spectacular Life of Sam Kinison, starring Dan Fogler.

The script is by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, whose Harvey Pekar biopic American Splendor, starring Paul Giamatti and Hope Davis, was one of my favorite films of 2003.

Variety has these and other details.
