Jon Voight in Negotiations to Play Soviet Spy in Ronald Reagan’s Hollywood Biopic

EDITORS NOTE: The best political documentary of all time, in my opinion, is “In The Face of Evil, Reagan’s War in Words and Deeds” (see trailer) This film, written and directed by Stephen K. Bannon, is a treatment on Reagan’s rise to power and how he, along with Margaret Thatcher and Pope John Paul the II, won the cold war against the Soviet Union and forever banished Communist Russia to the ash heap of history.  Unfortunately, the Communist had their own parellel game plan that involved the control of the American Mainstream Media, our Public Education and Hollywood Movie making. So do not expect to see truth but do expect to see a rewite of history to support the abosolute hate of the tradional values that made this Nation the greatest on earth.

Jon Voight in Negotiations to Play KGB Agent in Ronald Reagan Biopic

by Paul Bond

Jon_VoightThe indie, “Reagan,” is one of at least three upcoming films about the 40th U.S. president.

Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight is negotiating to play a pivotal role in Reagan, an upcoming movie about President Ronald Reagan, people associated with the project said Tuesday.

Voight, perhaps the most prominent and outspoken conservative in Hollywood, would play a Soviet KGB agent whose job it was to track Reagan, the 40th U.S. president who is largely considered a hero of the Republican party.

The movie is based on The Crusader and God & Ronald Reagan, two books by Paul Kengor. The story unfolds as a young Russian leader visits a retired agent named Viktor – the character Voight is negotiating to play – so that he may learn of the demise of the Soviet Union.

“Viktor is actually a character based on a number of KGB agents and Soviet analysts who we now know were tasked with keeping tabs on Ronald Reagan for many years,” Kengor said. “This is a feature film and not a documentary and I thought it was a smart way for the producers to keep the integrity of the story and yet make it entertaining.”

The $35 million independent movie is being written by Jonas McCord (The Young Riders, The Body) and Howie Klausner (Space Cowboys). It is produced by Ralph Winter, who was behind the 2000-06 X-Men films, along with Mark Joseph, who produced the indie film Doonby in 2010 and was a marketing executive on such films as The Passion of the Christ, Holes and Ray.

The former U.S. president is a fairly hot commodity in Hollywood nowadays, with multiple projects in the works that will feature Reagan. The Butler, for example, has already generated controversy for casting liberal activist Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan while Alan Rickman plays Ronald Reagan. The Weinstein Co. film is expected to open in 2013.

Reykjavic from Participant Media will feature Michael Douglas, also a liberal activist, as Reagan. Participant has backed several politically-charged movies, including Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln and former Vice President Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth.

Perhaps the best-known treatment of Reagan was in 2003 when James Brolin portrayed him in the Showtime miniseries, The Reagans, largely perceived to be a negative take on his presidency.

“Hating Breitbart” A Movie about a Right Wing Rebel with a Cause.

Having just come from a screening of Andrew Marcus’s film, “Hating Breitbart”, I find myself inspired, and optimistic about the future: a future populated with equally inspired, now courageous, Right Wing citizen journalists, speakers, bloggers and activists, who are determined to follow in Breitbart’s shoes.

What I loved about the movie “Hating Breitbart” is that it allowed Breitbart’s personality to carry the narration. Andrew is a superstar. He is right up there with the best action movie stars and raucous rock stars.

When I was in the trenches of the music business I often asked my record company clients why they signed bands like Guns & Roses and Mötley Crüe. Their answers had one common denominator: What attracted us to them was not their music, but the fact that they were attention getters.

The same is true in our universe. It’s not the message (the mainstream media is biased and corrupt) it is who is delivering it that matters. Only someone like Andrew Breitbart, with his larger-than-life charisma, can successfully deliver that message in a compelling and convincing manner. Now that we don’t have him among us, this movie will inspire more “Breitbarts” to pick up the sword (the camera and the pen) and fight on.

Just as the right wing revered Reagan as a political leader, in Breitbart, we now have a contemporary and relevant standard bearer for all of us Right Wing New Media Citizen Journalists to aspire.

That is why this movie needs to be pushed.

“Hating Breitbart” will become a cult classic… the Right Wing’s “Rebel With a Cause.”

“LIFT UP YOUR CAMERA SPREAD THE TRUTH.”
