If Fred Durst can direct a movie, by golly, so can he.

He’s long been a favorite target for critics, but that hasn’t stopped Jim Belushi from carving out an admirably long and successful career in front of the camera. Now, as Variety reports, he’s preparing to step behind the lens for his feature-length directorial debut.

Belushi will direct (and star in) The Catch, based on the real-life story of Marty Reichman, who returned to college at the age of 42, learned he was still eligible to play football, and made the team. The deal was apparently brokered after a meeting between Reichman and Belushi, in which Reichman told Belushi his story personally. David Murray has agreed to write the script.

Belushi, who starred in 1989’s K-9 and its two blockbuster sequels, K-911 and K-9: P.I., will film The Catch after completing 18 episodes of the mind-boggling seventh season of his ABC sitcom, According to Jim.
