The Curse of Atuk

The Curse of Atuk

Normally every industry carries with it some sort of urban legend. Some tales are based on actual fact while others are just tales. One such thing can be said about the script titled Atuk. The script is based on a book about an Eskimo coming to America written in 1963.

Curse of the Incomparable AtukFor over 40 years there has been interest in making this script a reality but it seems like every interested party dies. Comedians John Belushi, Sam Kinison, John Candy, and Chris Farley all expressed real interest in the lead role.

It’s incredible to think that all of these comedians would die within just a few years of of expressing interest in the role.

Curse? You decide!
