The Curse of Atuk
Atuk is a script for a movie yet to be made. Legend has it that this script has been passed amongst some of Hollywoods leading funny men who have all passed away suddenly after reading the script.
Atuk, which means “Grandfather” in Inuit is intended to be a film about an Inuit hunter trying to adapt to life in the big city, a classic “fish out of water” type tale.
Actors to have read the script and allegedly top have died because of its curse include, John Belushi, John Candy, Chris Farley and Sam Kinison, others whose deaths have also been attributed to the curse include Michael O'Donoghue and Phil Hartman who both would have had minor roles in the film.
The movie was most recently referenced by Will Ferrell in “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” when Adam McKay repeatedly pitches a screenplay called “Eskimo in New York” to Ron Burgundy
Is the legend truthful or is it just another group of coincidences that have been loosely put together as a conspiracy and curses....
