Zach Galifianakis"The Hangover" director Todd Phillips is developing a new John Belushi biopic, and Zach Galifianakis is at the top of his leading men list.
 
The filmmaker is a longtime fan of the tragic comedy legend and admits he's close to pre-production on the film of Belushi's life.
 
He tells Details magazine he has yet to cast the film - but his "The Hangover" star Galifianakis is a favorite to play the wildman.
 
Phillips admits he's surprised by internet stories suggesting Seth Rogen will play Belushi: "They want Seth Rogen? That's interesting. I honestly never even thought of that. Zach, obviously. I've thought of Zach because it's Zach, and I think of him for everything."
