Movie producer Harvey Weinstein announced for the first time on Howard Sterns radio show that he is making a full feature drama to try to destroy the National Rifle Association.
Mr. Stern asked Mr. Weinstein on Wednesday whether he owned a gun. The Hollywood heavyweight replied that he did not and never would. I dont think we need guns in this country. And I hate it, the producer said. I think the NRA is a disaster area.
... then revealed his secret project about the gun rights group. I shouldnt say this, but Ill tell it to you, Howard, he said. Im going to make a movie with Meryl Streep, and were going to take this head-on. And theyre going to wish they werent alive after Im done with them.
The shock jock asked whether the film was going to be a documentary. Mr. Weinstein said no, that it would be a big movie like a Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.
The movie mogul said his vision was to scare people away from firearms. He foresees moviegoers to leave thinking, Gun stocks I dont want to be involved in that stuff. Its going to be like crash and burn.

Yeah - right - he’s in make believe land...there has never been nor ever be a Hollywood movie - or any movie for that matter that will be so influential as to change my mind about owning guns or anything else in my life...movies are entertainment - that’s it - nothing more!
What a tool...
..gun sales will increase
Useful idiots at work!
Mind bogglingly stupid people.
Will that dump get rid of his armed body guards? Dubious
But I thought movies have no effect on peoples' behavior? That's what Hollywood says every time there is a mass shooting and the perps were mimicking a movie or a video game.
Oh no, I am so frightened
This could be a pretty passable definition of "wishful thinking"
Or more likely, “I have a different constitution, a different brain, ....I have Tiger Blood.”

IOW this is a propaganda film hatched by some political hack in DC and executed by Hollywood.
Just remember that the defining characteristic of these people is the ability to think two different and contradictory thoughts at the same time. And consider it perfectly natural and logical.
To paraphrase the farmer in ‘Babe’ to Harvey and Meryl... “That’ll do, fascist pigs. That’ll do.”
Yeah sure, Harvey, whatever.
This movie either has zero effect or causes an increase in sales.
Anti gun movies from Hollywood are a dime a dozen
Actually my little film company had considered ways to make Ross’s great pro-gun book “Unintended Consequences.”
