Sofia Vergara’s slimy ex Nick Loeb recently moved to Louisiana in what was a blatant attempt to convince the mostly pro-life state to hand over the frozen embryos he’s been chasing for over three years now. But he can’t possibly be spending all his free time trying to get his frozen embryos Emma and Isabelle. As it turns out, he’s been killing time putting the $ in $hameless by making an anti-abortion movie in Louisiana.
Paul Bond of The Hollywood Reporter flew to Louisiana to the set of Roe v. Wade for the secret-ish anti-abortion film Nick has been working on with his partner, Cathy Allyn, since June 15th. Nick and Cathy are co-directing, producing, and have co-written the script. Nick and Cathy stepped in to direct (their first time) after the director and AD quit.
Nick’s film will reportedly be finished by July 15th. Not much is known about the film, besides the plot being about Roe v. Wade and a few actors involved. It stars outspoken conservatives Jon Voight and Robert Davi as two Supreme Court justices, as well as Steve Guttenberg, Joey Lawrence, and one-time Fox News darling Stacey Dash. Stacey reportedly plays Mildred Jefferson, the former president of National Right to Life. Stephen Baldwin and Kevin Sorbo were reportedly involved, but they dropped out. Both Tomi Lahren and Milo Yiannopoulos reportedly have filmed cameos.
Even though the Supreme Court sided with pro-choice rights in 1973, clearly Nick’s movie has an anti-abortion angle. THR says that several actors walked off set and quit after they realized they were making some blatant anti-abortion propaganda. Nick claims he just wants to tell the truth about some fake news.
“I have my own pro-life issue going on with my fight over embryos, but no one has really told the whole truth about Roe v. Wade in a film. When I delved into this, I discovered conspiracy theories, fake news, made-up statistics and a whole lot of people involved who switched their positions from pro-choice to pro-life, including Norma [aka Jane Roe].”
According to some anonymous former cast and crew that spoke to The Daily Beast, Nick has been misrepresenting his true intentions from the beginning of production. They say the film includes several graphic scenes depicting aborted fetuses. One crew member said: “When I read the first two pages, I was like what the fuck is this?” Another crew member says some scripts are decoys, with lines being changed right before the camera turns on. Nick Loeb himself plays Dr. Bernard Nathanson, an abortion doctor turned anti-abortion activist.
It sounds like absolutely no one with any sense wants to be associated with Nick’s movie. Facebook shut down an attempt by Nick to crowdfund the project (Nick is still trying to raise money for the film with a GoFundMe campaign, currently at almost $300,000 of a $1 million goal). Both Tulane University and Louisiana State University reportedly denied Nick filming permits due to the “content” of the film. Nick told THR this anecdote that kind of sums it all up.
As Nick Loeb walked to his car with a production assistant during a day of shooting his upcoming feature film, a woman wearing a headset approached and asked: “Are you the director?”
“When I told her I was, she told me to go fuck myself,” Loeb recalls. “Then she threw her headset on the ground and walked off. I found out later she was our electrician.”
Nick claims filming has been so bad, he’s had to work under a fake title in an attempt to obtain shooting locations and keep people involved. Based on everything about this, my guess is that it’s going to have a totally different title once it’s released too: Nick Loeb v. The Razzies.
