Skip to comments.A New Low For Hollywood Scum… Hanoi Jane to Play Nancy Reagan in Film
Posted on 03/28/2012 6:29:02 AM PDT by Pride_of_the_Bluegrass
In the midst of recruiting an all-star ensemble for his long-gestating passion project The Butler, director Lee Daniels has tapped Jane Fonda to play Nancy Reagan.
Based on a Washington Post report by Wil Haygood, pic follows Eugene Allen, the White House butler whose career started with Harry Truman in 1952 and ended in 1986 with Ronald Reagan.
Forest Whitaker is closing a deal to play Allen, while Oprah Winfrey remains in talks to play his wife. David Oyelowo is in negotiations to play Allens son, while Liam Neeson and John Cusack are circling presidential supporting roles as Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard Nixon, respectively. Fonda will appear in a handful of scenes as the first lady of the United States.
Daniels, who is directing from a script he co-wrote with Danny Strong, is in the process of finalizing financing for the pic, which has no distributor onboard yet. Pamela Williams will produce through Laura Ziskin Prods. along with Hilary Shor.
Though no cast deals are in place yet, producers are eyeing a summer start date.

Fonda would make a better Cleopatra. Dead and buried.
Did they spell the names correctly?
A cheap approach to market a weak product.
She should have been shot many years ago.
I read a comment by Debbie Schlussel that I thought was spot on about that HBO trash about Sarah Palin. Schlussel’s point was that the more people talked about the hit piece, the more people that tuned in to see what it is about.
The best way to see to it that the communist pig does not get an audience for this p.o.s. movie is to not mention it or discuss her role in it.
The Left’s compulsion to torture Nancy Reagan absolutely sickens me.
Up to and including the way the mainstream press zoomed in tight with their cameras as she was breaking down over her husband’s casket just before they buried him.
Hasn’t this woman been through enough, watching her husband slowly wither and die with Alzheimers and all?
Plus she is pushing 90. None of us would ever be this cruel to a prominent Lefty in her situation.
Whatever. Blockbuster needs another straight to video movie on its shelves to sit next to Road House 2, Ace Ventura Pet Detective Jr. and Inspector Gadget 2!
They are evil hateful people.
This is a slap in the face to the military, and to patriotic Americans. Instead of being charged with treason, the woman is adored by the left. To make matters worse, she’s attempting to portray a woman who is still alive. Nancy is approaching 90 years old. Hollyweirders must not want to see her have another birthday.
Must be the same casting director that cast Will Smith as James West in Wild Wild West!
Major Hollywood pinheads - Fonda, the producer, the director....the whole damn film industry leftist culture.
Boycott everything and everyone associated with this monstrosity !
Who will watch it? Conservatives won’t because Fonda is in it and Liberals won’t because it’s about Nancy Reagan. Who’s left?
Well, this can be remedied.
We’ve got some conservatives in Hollywood. Not a lot, but more than people might expect. It’s time to make “the Jane Fonda story.” It will focus on Fonda’s work in Vietnam. We can get Emma Caulfield to star. Very conservative actress, and just the right age to play Hanoi Jane back in the sixties.
Of course, we would also need to show the full context. The movie would show the torture of POWs and the downing of American aircraft using the anti-aircraft guns that Fonda posed on.
I think it would be a hit. “Act of Valor” already has sales that are five times the cost of the movie, making it a very profitable movie. Patriotic movies sell.
Oprah winfrey is to play the female lead in this “the butler” movie.
oprah = no way movie
jane fonda = no way movie
both of them are a guarantee of NOT getting my movie dollars.
If there’s not a lot of obscenities and soft porn in it, even the Liberals won’t go to see it. Maybe hardcore KOSkids and DUmmies, but that’s it.
The movie is DOA
They need to make a movie about Jane Fonda and show what a whore she is.
Casting Hanoi Jane as Mrs. Reagan along with other wildly liberal casting choices is Hollywood flipping a great big bird at Flyover America. They do it because conservatives like us, not just liberals, hand over their money to watch their sick and subversive propaganda. With all that wealth they are insulated from economic/ political reality.
Theres an obvious solution, one I plan to implement on all such outrageous Hollywood products. I agree with the poster who wrote that the less said about this project the better. Controversy is the best kind of publicity and will guarantee that more people hand over their money to these radical pigs.
Thanks to anti-war, Communist loving, American hating scum like Jane Fonda, John Kerry, Ted Kennedy,Patrick Leahy, etc.
the Vietnam War was lost and as a result, 3.5 million women, children, men were slaughtered in the new worker’s paradise the Communists initiated in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos post 1975.
As Fonda ages, she comes closer to the day when she will judged for her crimes against humanity.
It is beyong ironic that the country she hated most, she made a fortune from, in movies and exercise videos, not ten years after her treason was committed. She has never changed her stripes. I hope she gets to see every one of the 3.5 million faces of those she helped condemn to death before the gates of hell close behind her.
I think this is great! Some liberal investors are going to lose some money. Liberals wouldn’t go to a movie like this, and conservatives who would, will not because of Hanoi Jane, the commie bit**. A lose-lose proprosition for the liberal film makers and their liberal investors. And that’s a good thing.
My point, in another thread.
Of course, Obama could simply MANDATE we see the movie.
Will this film include the famous LBJ quote: “If we pass these [Great Society] programs, we’ll have the niggers voting Democrat for the next 50 years”? From “Inside the White House” by Ron Kessler.
I predict epic....FAIL.
“The Jane Fonda Story”
That’s an outstanding idea! If only there was enough will & moola among Hollywood conservatives to make it happen.
Well... John Milius produced “Red Dawn”, didn’t he?
What we also need is “Islamic Dawn”. But the Hollywood majority knows better than to further enrage the permanently enraged muzzies.
Even Hanoi Hannah wonders why her counterpart never came back.
This is more of the Hollywood spin machine!
They write a movie about a butler who served many years in the White House - a very noble commitment by the butler, I might add.
So, thinking that this isn’t a great subject, but “worthy” they now fill it with as many America-hating, liberals as possible, so that IF it fails they can scream - see, racism is still alive in America! We make a perfectly good movie and the white-majority of America refused to see it!
I would not put this past the Hollywood liberals to waste that money for the “greater good” of their cause!
In a perfect world
I’m guessing he loved his job and stayed in it. And got great benefit from it.
Now the movie...will explain how racist all the Presidents were and every negative thing that might or might not have been said etc.
Otherwise Oprah wouldn’t be in it, and the buzz in an election year.
Who gets to play Ronaldus Magnus - Sean Penn?
What a loathsome, despicable piles of protoplasm.
Wow Jane Fonda.
I am so glad they are thinking of picking a one percenter who worked so hard to get discovered by her dad. That fine actress who never got an academy award for her finest role in Barberella. The multi talented Jane who can work an anti aircraft gun with as much talent as she can cover up her body damaging workout videos. If she can pull this off she is a great actress. She will have to act like she has class and grace, can she pull it off?
“Who will watch it? Conservatives wont because Fonda is in it and Liberals wont because its about Nancy Reagan. Whos left?”
Why, “moderates” like Mitt Romney, of course!
Get the popcorn ready!
At least she physically kind of resembles her.
” Who will watch it? Conservatives wont because Fonda is in it and Liberals wont because its about Nancy Reagan. Whos left?”
Big horse faced commie plays a little petite woman.
