Tom Shadyac is stepping out of the trailer park and back behind the camera. The Ace Ventura director will next take on a Sam Kinison biopic for HBO Films. The film is based on the memoir Brother Sam: The Short, Spectacular Life of Sam Kinison. Rich Wilkes, the writer of xXx (WTF?), will pen the script, and Dan Fogler is attached to star as the beret wearing comedian.

I personally have never been a huge fan of Kinison. I get the whole angsty thing, but the screaming schtick always annoyed me more than amused me. Even in the screen test of Fogler I’ve posted below, I just want to tell him to keep it down. In a tiny comedy club, Kinison’s primal scream must have been an assault on the ears. I’m trying to enjoy my chicken fingers over here, guy! (Variety)
