Wired is a 1989 biographical film of comedian and actor John Belushi, directed by Larry Peerce, and adapted from the investigative journalism book Wired: The Short Life and Fast Times of John Belushi written by Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward and published in 1984. It starred Michael Chiklis in his film debut as Belushi. Wired was both a critical and a commercial failure. The film has never been released on DVD, and the videocassette originally released by International Video Entertainment is out of print. The film was marketed with the tagline "For John Belushi every night was Saturday Night." The film's trailer opted for the tagline "The laughs and times of John Belushi," paraphrasing the title of Woodward's book.
