Clint Eastwood To Film New Movie In Georgia Despite Hollywood Boycott Over 'Heartbeat Bill'

Excerpt:

Despite the boycott of filming in Georgia launched by Hollywood liberals angry over the state's new pro-life "Heartbeat" law, legendary actor/director Clint Eastwood will be making his latest movie, "The Battle of Richard Jewell," in Atlanta this summer, reported NBC Charlotte and other media.

"Clint Eastwood will perform new film in Georgia despite abortion bill boycott," tweeted NBC Charlotte on June 25. The movie is about Richard Jewell, a police officer and security guard who discovered a bomb at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Ga., and saved countless lives. Jewell was initially hailed as a hero and then was viewed as a suspect.

The liberal media criticized Jewell relentlessly and essentially practiced "trial by media." Eventually, however, Jewell was completely exonerated and the real bomber, Eric Rudolph, was captured. Jewell sued NBC, CNN, and the New York Post for libel and won large settlements. His lawyer, L. Lin Wood, is the same lawyer now representing the Covington Catholic kid Nicholas Sandmann in defamation lawsuits against CNN and the Washington Post.

The heartbeat bill in Georgia prohibits abortion once a baby's heartbeat starts, which is usually six weeks into pregnancy. The bill, signed into law in May, allows exceptions in the cases of rape, incest, or if the mother's life is at serious risk.

One of the lead Hollywood activists to protest the new law is Alyssa Milano, and she helped organize the boycott of the Peach State.

In a letter to Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, Milano -- joined by 40-plus other actors and Hollywood activists -- wrote, "As actors, our work often brings us to Georgia. We've always found your state to be populated with friendly and caring people. We've found the hotels in which we stay and restaurants in which we dine while filming there to be comfortable and of a high quality. We've been glad to bring billions of dollars in revenue to support Georgia's schools, parks, and communities.

"But we cannot in good conscience continue to recommend our industry remain in Georgia if H.B. 481 [heartbeat bill] becomes law.... [W]e will do everything in our power to move our industry to a safer state for women if H.B. 481 becomes law. You have a choice, gentlemen. We pray you make the right one."

The letter was signed by many Hollywood personalities including Alec Baldwin, Billy Baldwin, David Arquette, Don Cheadle, Jon Cryer, Laura Dern, Lena Dunham, Mia Farrow, Ashley Judd, Zoe Kravitz, Brie Larson, Eva Longoria, Many Moore, Rosie O'Donnell, Patton Oswalt, Sean Penn, Natalie Portman, Emma Roberts, Mark Ruffalo, Amy Schumer, Ben Stiller, and Naomi Watts.

Some of the actors slated to work on the Eastwood film include Kathy Bates, Olivia Wilde, Jon Hamm and Sam Rockwell.

Not to nitpick,...

“”He has won 13 Academy Awards (nominated 40 times”

But, he has won 4 Oscars, and was nominated 11 times.

The New York Post is hardly "the liberal media".

Just like Mel Gibson, Clint will be laughing all the way to the bank with his next big hit.

Considering the bombing happened in Georgia, and Mr. Jewell lived and died there, it makes sense.

I liked his drug mule movie except for the ending.

And I bet lots and lots of people would like to volunteer to become a drug mule because of the earning potential.

Clint Eastwoods 'Play Misty For Me' was a much less stylish, but equally terrifying Fatal Attraction.

And Jessica Walter wasn't ugly like Glenn Close was.

I think that is Mandy Moore, she started as a pop singer then turned to acting.

Ah, thanks. Never heard of her, but "Mandy" as a name definitely makes more sense than "Many".
