This pressure can utterly transform a film project, as Tom Clancy will tell you. In his novel The Sum of All Fears, Muslim terrorists explode a nuke at the Super Bowl. When Clancy optioned the book and the film went into development, the Council on American Islamic Relations got to work. The 2002 film villains: white neo-Nazis, not Muslim fanatics.

...just as "24" last year came under fire for having a Muslim 'bad guy.'

This article is long, but I read every word. If you are a conservative who likes movies, read it.

There are very few movies that I can even watch these days because of the outspoken Bush-haters who star in them. I have a list a mile long on which are people that I refuse to support with my movie money.

Alec Baldwin seemed to be making a couple of movies a year... now he seems to have been "retired to the trash bin".

Average Republican and independent American movie goers are refusing to spend a dime on extreme left wing "stars".

George Clooney, Sean Penn and their like are next to feel the pinch...producers invest in movies to make money... if Half of the potential market, in essence boycotts certain actors out of disgust, guess who doesn't get cast... ANYMORE...lol
