John Cusack is… Rush Limbaugh?

John Cuscak   Rush LimbaughJohn Cusack’s New Crime Productions is currently working on a feature film based on conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh, tentatively titled simply ‘Rush’.

Earlier this year, Limbaugh called a Georgetown law student a “slut” and a “prostitute” on air for arguing to Democrats in Congress that health plans should pay for contraception. He recently made fun of Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for his “bromance” with Obama after Christie praised the president’s response to the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

A spokesman for the production company told the AP last week that the script is currently being finished. Emmy-winning actress-turned-director Betty Thomas is set to direct.

Cusack is no stranger to vocalizing his feelings about the government: he  has criticized Obama over his military and civil liberties policies like drone strikes and indefinite detention, was an outspoken critic of President George W. Bush, and appeared in 2008 MoveOn advertisements against then-GOP candidate John McCain.
