An in-production movie about the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 decision legalizing abortion has attracted more attention for actors it didn’t cast than for the recognizable stars it did, a development its writer-director attributes to “fake news.”
Actor turned filmmaker Nick Loeb said his production of “Roe v. Wade,” in which he makes his directorial debut, is under siege by unfriendly media that are reporting erroneously about the film. He cites as a key culprit the Daily Beast, which reported that actors Kevin Sorbo of TV’s “Hercules” and Stephen Baldwin of “The Usual Suspects” — both veterans of faith-based movies — turned down the project after reading the script.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The ‘fake news’ is incredible. They’re falling all over themselves to lie and spin the truth,” Mr. Loeb said of the media’s treatment of the film. He added that both actors had prior commitments.
Mr. Sorbo backs up Mr. Loeb’s account, saying his schedule prevented his participation in the pro-life film. During a break in his movie project in Calgary, Alberta, Mr. Sorbo told The Washington Times by phone: “I wanted to do the movie. I loved the movie and loved the part.” He said “Roe v. Wade” would have allowed him to work alongside Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight, a friend and fellow conservative.
Mr. Loeb and co-writer/co-director Cathy Allyn said a Daily Beast reporter intruded on the set during filming at the Lincoln Memorial, distracting the cast and crew in the process.
The filmmakers based the story on 40 research books on the subject and used “two sources for every fact we stated,” As for the resistance against their film, Ms. Allyn has a simple question: “What are they so afraid of?”
