WALK HARD, the next project for Jake Kasdan & Judd Apatow, is a mock(umentary?) biography of a ficitional musician.  It’s been getting a lot of buzz, and will hopefully break Kasdan’s feature slump (orange county, tv set) since his feature debut ZERO EFFECT.

CHUD.com – Cinematic Happenings Under Development

This isn’t exactly breaking news – it was rumored back in March – but Jack White has confirmed to MTV News that he’ll be appearing in Walk Hard as Elvis Presley, who meets John C Reilly’s fictional musician Dewey Cox backstage at a concert and, as White told MTV, “drama ensues.”Jack White isn’t the only great cameo in the film; as CHUD reader Justin Long revealed to Frosty at Collider a couple of weeks ago he’s going to be showing up as George Harrison, while Jack Black will be Paul McCartney (!), Paul Rudd is John Lennon and Jason Schwartzman is Ringo Starr. That’s a helluva Beatles line-up, to be sure.

my favorite bit of John C. Reilly trivia?  he was the sasquatch in the tenacious d short “let the dream die”
