Venezuela will back Hollywood actor Danny Glover's directing debut, providing 18 of the 30 million dollars needed to produce his film on an Haitian independence hero, industry sources said Tuesday.
"Lethal Weapon" co-star Glover, 60, currently on a speaking tour of Caracas, has supported Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez' political revolution since he was first elected in 1998, as well as the creation last year of Venezuela's Villa del Cine (Film Town), Variety magazine said Tuesday.
On launching Villa del Cine, the anti-US Chavez administration said it intended to do battle with "the Hollywood film dictatorship."
Doesn't Danny Glover know that he will forever be blacklisted in Hollywood for his overt communism? I saw Ed Harris, Nick Nolte and Amy Madigan sit on their hands at the Oscars because Elia Kazan hurt innocent people. They wouldn't dare prove Kazan right by letting actual communists work.
It ain't a witch hunt if the witch is a witch. . .
