Deadline New York is reporting that a biopic is in the works from writer and producer James Sclafani.

"This is 'Citizen Kane' meets 'Private Parts,' where you have a man who always had trouble relating to people in the outside world, but does it effortlessly in the booth," Sclafani told Deadline New York.

For the script, Sclafani has optioned "The Rush Limbaugh Story," an unauthorized biography written by Paul Colford.

Colford, a veteran journalist who's now director of media relations for the Associated Press, said in an email to Yahoo! News that despite being published in 1993, the book on Limbaugh still gets attention.

"Not a week has gone by since the book came out years ago that it hasn't been a source or a reference for a story or commentary of some sort," Colford said. "The film interest is gratifying on a whole new level.

"I'm thrilled that screenwriter Jim Sclafani has tapped the cinematic potential in Rush Limbaugh's years of struggling, from the radio-gypsy life to national renown," he continued. "Jim has written a wonderful script that's faithful to the story."

At this point, Limbaugh is not involved with the film about his life, and it'll be at least a week until he's back on the air to let his faithful audience know what he thinks about the possibilities for "Rush Limbaugh: The Movie."
