Major Hollywood Producer Vows to Make the NRA ‘Wish They Weren’t Alive’ With Upcoming ‘Big Movie’
Jan. 15, 2014 10:07pm Jason Howerton

Big-time movie producer Harvey Weinstein revealed Wednesday that he is making an anti-gun movie with actress Meryl Streep that is going to make the National Rifle Association “wish they weren’t alive.”

During an interview with Howard Stern on his radio show, Weinstein said the new full feature drama will take the NRA “head on.” He also said he’s never owned a gun and never will.

“I don’t think we need guns in this country. And I hate it. I think the NRA is a disaster area,” Weinstein said.

After first telling Stern that he shouldn’t reveal too much about his secretive film, the producer spilled the beans.

“I’m going to make a movie with Meryl Streep, and we’re going to take this issue head on. And they’re going to wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them,” he added, referring to the NRA.

Weinstein said the film is not a documentary and will be a “big movie like a ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.’” The Hollywood heavyweight was clear that he wants to scare people enough so that they don’t want to be involved with guns.

When Stern challenged his anti-gun logic, Weinstein argued that he would “find a gun” if something like the Holocaust were to happen and his “people” were being marched into Auschwitz.

However, as the Washington Times’ Emily Miller points out: “Mr. Weinstein has been watching too many movies if he thinks the good guys find fully-loaded firearms in convenient locations to use only when necessary.”

Miller also notes that the chairman of the Weinstein Company is one of President Barack Obama’s biggest fundraisers.

Someone should point out the hypocrisy that two of his partners his production firm, The Weinstein Company are  Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez.

Hasn't Hollywood already tried this with RUNAWAY JURY and THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT?

I don't expect accuracy as I am trying to figure out how the girl in KILL BILL managed to carry her Samurai Sword with her on the aircraft.  Definitely Hollywood nonsense.

Since we know Streep is the star of this flick... wanna bet he's going to make a gory Sandy Hook movie?

Harvey is a rich left-wing butt pirate that isn't good for much else other than rendering his extensive body fat for soap.

And shitty soap at that.

That is all.

This kind of stuff is so gauche and passe'. It is the tired old story of some relatively obscure billionaire, funding his own movie that is supposed to "change the world". Whenever we hear Liberal nonsense like this about any movie, the thing is always already a flop before it is even made.
 
It will be fun watching his megalomania and arrogance get slapped down a few notches, when his 'change the world' movie opens up in a couple dozen theaters to an audience of a few thousand, just like these Lib propaganda trash movies always do. Just another in a long list of fail.
 
BTW, it is lost on no one that this idiot became rich by selling guns and violence, and then makes a movie against guns and violence. When it comes to Liberal fools, they are so absurd that you just can't make this stuff up.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

The mother dies so maybe not. Unless she plays another role. Or does she play mom who was pushed by the evil right wing forcing her son to shoot weapons and  kill little children?

This would be my guess

  • French entertainment is a waste of mime.
I'm going to hold off judging. Weinstein is a loathsome little fat creep and an bleep to boot, but Meryl Streep will simply not take a role she can't rock. If he really does have her on board - it will be a decent flick, regardless of the message, and it'll have way more than the one dimension the left prefers for their morality plays.
Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.

There will be a poignant moment.  Meryl Streep, Sally Field, Glenn Close gathered around a hospital bed, beeping machine, tears, dabbing eyes and under noses
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Beg to differ.  Pay a celeb enough and they'll do almost anything.  For enough money Streep would do anything other than porn.
