Per usual, details of his role are unknown, as well as additional plot details. The project is a period drama set in the the ‘50s and production for the film will begin in New York this fall. Allen is set to produce alongside Letty Aronson and Edward Walson. This is the first time both actors will work with the “Annie Hall” helmer.
Allen’s latest feature, “Café Society,” opened the Cannes Film Festival back in May and received a slew of positive reviews. Starring Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg and Steve Carell, the dramedy is set in the 1930s and follows a young man who moves to Hollywood in hopes of working in the film industry. Lionsgate will release the film in theaters on July 15.
Belushi can be seen next in the Courtney Hunt-directed thriller “The Whole Truth,” opposite Keanu Reeves and Renée Zellweger and the comedy “Undrafted.” He also has a role in the upcoming “Twin Peaks” revival and voicing the character Coach Wittenberg in the “Hey Arnold” movie.
