Sarah Palin Film Is a 'Real-Life Version of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,' Says Director
"The Undefeated" filmmaker Stephen Bannon asserts that celebrity comments against the former Alaska Governor were calculated and undeserved.
Sarah Palin will be joined by an unlikely group of co-stars in her upcoming film: Matt Damon, Rosie O'Donnell, David Letterman and Bill Maher, among other Hollywood celebrities who loathe her.
The stars appear in the feature-length biography of Palin from documentary filmmaker Stephen Bannon that is designed to reintroduce Palin as a woman who rose from nowhere to become the nation's most popular governor.
That, of course, was before she was chosen as John McCain's vice presidential running mate and the liberal media set out to strip her of her credibility, according to the film.
That effort included Hollywood figures saying some remarkably unkind things about Palin, and Bannon puts them front and center in his film, The Undefeated, which he'll roll out in theaters slowly beginning a month from now. A DVD is forthcoming and negotiations for VOD are ongoing.
