This is an outrage.
Instead of marching, raising money, and lobbying for action, Cher and her Hollywood buddies are going to make a film.
From the Hollywood Reporter:
Cher is headed for Lifetime.
The iconic singer-actress has been tapped to star in Flint, a TV movie based on the Flint, Mich., water crisis, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Craig Zadan, Neil Meron and Katie Couric will executive produce, alongside Cher. Bruce Beresford will direct the movie from Sony Pictures Television. Barbara Stepansky will pen the script.
Cher will portray a Flint resident whose family is impacted by the water crisis.
The drama is based on events in Flint about the poor management that led to water poisoning as well as the human elements of the residents who suffered — and whose voices were ignored. The movie was inspired by a February 2016 cover story in Time magazine called "The Toxic Tap," by Josh Sanburn.
Zadan and Meron's Sony Pictures TV-based Storyline Entertainment optioned the rights to the story.Hello? America? Instead of making movies about the problem, how about fixing the damned problem.
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
It covers the nomination process only. The general election will be covered in a sequel.
