Filmmaker Nick Loeb is turning to cryptocurrency to make an anti-abortion movie about the Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade.
Nick Loeb Is Ready to Bring A Sensitive Subject to Light
For those who have been living under a rock for the past four years, abortion has become a huge topic in the United States. President Donald J. Trump has repeatedly taken an anti-abortion stance and has sought the defunding of organizations such as Planned Parenthood, a decision that has rung bells with conservative voters while angering liberal citizens and democrats in office.
It is interesting to see Loeb take a stance against abortion. One would think that working in Hollywood, he would lean left like so many of his counterparts, but it just goes to show you that not everyone seeks to play by the rules that have been laid out for them, and in that sense, one has to admire Loeb for following his own moral code and not allowing the environment that surrounds him to break it.
The film will not be a documentary but will instead serve as a narrative film depicting the events through actors and dramatical accounts. The movie will allegedly star Oscar winner Jon Voight and Stacey Dash of “Clueless” fame.
However, this is assuming that the movie ever gets off the ground. It appears the project has had a troubled history, struggling in the past to garner the funds necessary to bring production up to speed. Initially, Loeb tried to garner the money necessary for making the film through GoFundMe and similar pages that seek to help artists get the capital they require to bring their projects to life.
It doesn’t look like this has produced the results he was looking for. He’ll now turn to a company called the Liechtenstein Crypto Assets Exchange to garner the funds he needs to bring the movie to the screen.
One of the big reasons Loeb has had difficulty in getting the money he needs is because he has continually approached investors in a town that for many years has leaned far to the left and expressed over-the-top opinions regarding abortion. Many people in Hollywood – producers, directors, etc. – are in favor of abortion, and Loeb’s ideals have ultimately clashed with theirs.
One anonymous investor who was approached by Loeb explained in an interview:
The film reinforces lies that have been told… all the weird fake news about abortion is in there. All stuff that is easily debunked.
Struggling to Get Things Going
The film has also lost crew members over its subject matter and has even been stopped from filming in certain locations. Still, Loeb is confident that this new method of funding will work to get the ball rolling, recently stating:
We are excited to be on the forefront of blockchain technology, creating our own cryptocurrency movie token specifically for distribution.
