Belushi is quite the Catch

  • 30 August 2007

K9 star Jim Belushi is set to make his directorial debut with Lionsgate’s new American football picture The Catch.

The everyday story of a 42 year-old man who returns to college to play football of the American variety, the Catch will, of course, also star Belushi.

It’s all based on a true story, that of Marty Reichman who decided to keep a promise to his father and return to college where he is quickly picked to play tight-end for the school’s American football team. Whatever a tight-end may be.

Belushi has already directed more than 30 episodes of his own show According to Jim, which has bizarrely never made it to this side of the Atlantic.
