Taylor Hackford and other top officials of his New Visions Pictures first viewed "Wired," a surreal chronicle of comedian John Belushi's life and 1982 death, at a private screening Jan. 16. Soon after, they began negotiating with F/M Entertainment for the rights to distribute "Wired" to American theaters. The two sides were apparently close to a deal when, on March 21, New Visions president Stuart Benjamin called "Wired" co-producer Charles Meeker with some troubling news. "The pressure has gotten to be too much," Benjamin said, according to notes that Meeker, an attorney, said he took of the 18-minute conversation.
