This year marked 30 years since John Candy’s death at the age of 43. His family paid tribute to the comedy actor for the anniversary back in March, but soon more of us will be able to pay our respects to the Planes, Trains & Automobiles star with an upcoming documentary being made by Tom Hanks’ son, Colin Hanks. As the movie continues to be in the works, one of the doc’s producers has spoken about how it will honor Candy’s legacy.

How The John Candy Biopic Will Honor The Actor’s Legacy 

Glen Zipper, who recently made The Blue Angels doc with Glen Powell and J.J. Abrams as well, spoke about immortalizing John Candy at the Cannes Film Festival when premiering Elizabeth Taylor: The Lost Tapes. Here’s what he told Deadline:

You can’t think of a film of John Candy’s — if you turned it on the day where you were in a bad mood and you gave him 90 minutes of your life — there’s no way you don’t come out the other side feeling better. And so the documentary’s going to have to do the same thing. And that’s Colin’s vision… He wants the John Candy documentary to leave you with the same sort of feeling you would have seeing a John Candy scripted film.
