“Here’s Johnny!” Hitchcock Team to Tackle Johnny Carson
The screenwriter for the upcoming Alfred Hitchcock biopic has just been attached to a film about TV’s longest running late night talk show host Johnny Carson.
Based on the non-fiction novel of Carson the Magnificent: An Intimate Portrait, screenwriter John J. McLaughlin has been given the go-ahead from the Carson estate to make the talk shows private and public live subject to a silver screen adaption. The novel the film will be building from was written by the only journalist Carson talked to since his retirement, which really should count for something!
No word on a director or star at this time.
