HBO Readying Sam Kinison Biopic


Late stand-up Sam Kinison, who was killed in a car crash in 1992, will be the subject of an upcoming HBO biopic.

Brother Sam: The Short, Spectacular Life of Sam Kinison will be helmed by Tom Shadyac (Bruce Almighty) and written by Rich Wilkes (xXx). Tony-winner Dan Fogler will star as Kinison. No word on when the flick is set to air, but there are rumors that it might also get a theatrical release.
