New Movie Based on Cartoonist John Callahan's Memoir

After a long time in development, cartoonist John Callahan's autobiography is adapted to the big screen in DON'T WORRY, HE WON'T GET FAR ON FOOT.

Many years ago this was a project near and dear to the late Robin Williams, who, if I remember correctly, befriended John. John became a quadriplegic after a car accident and was known for his very politically incorrect cartoons. He took up cartooning after the accident and had to draw with both hands clasped together. John died in 2010 at the age of 59.

The movie opens in 2018. It's directed by Gus van Zant and stars Joaquin Phoenix, Jack Black and Jonah Hill.

My thanks to my friend Adrian Sinnott for the heads up!
