Respect at last? Dangerfield movie in works
LOS ANGELES - Two of the producers of the Oscar-winning movie about soul singer Ray Charles are now turning their attention to another dead entertainer, Rodney Dangerfield, the comic famed for the signature phrase "I can't get no respect."
Hollywood trade paper Daily Variety reported in its Tuesday edition that producers Howard and Karen Baldwin will base their project in part on Dangerfield's memoir "It's Not Easy Bein' Me," which was published four months before he died last October, aged 82.
They also acquired life story rights from his widow, Joan.
