If you ever heard Sam Kinison on the stage or in a movie, he was unforgettable. Now a movie about the life of a comedian who lived as hard as he worked is finally moving forward according to Crave's Collider.com.

Josh Gad, from Book of Mormon, will play the preacher turned comedian in the aptly named Kinison. Larry Charles, who directed Borat and The Dictator, was hired to direct the biopic.  

The movie is based on the book Bill Kinison wrote about his brother.
