Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, hoping to replicate the box office success of his political documentary, "2016: Obama's America," is going into production for a new film with his same team simply titled, "America."
"We are now living in the America that we warned our fellow citizens could come to pass if President Obama were re-elected," said D'Souza, who will return as writer and host. The film's announcement came on Saturday during the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to "continue the dialogue with the audience."
"Like it or not America is now the nation that Barack Obama Junior and Senior dreamed of creating. Americans are right to be terrified as they see the transformation of America take place before their very eyes. But it's at great moments of peril like this that we need to regroup and rediscover the first principles of what made America great," he said. more >>
Actor Billy Zane, known for his villainous role in Hollywood blockbuster "Titanic," has taken on the biblical character of Barabbas, the murderer and robber who the New Testament says was freed from prison while Jesus Christ was sentenced to death.
The two-part program premiering on the ReelzChannel on March 25 is presented by creators as "a sweeping epic" about redemption "that picks up where the Bible left off."

Through his documentary "Monumental," actor and well-known evangelical role model Kirk Cameron has inspired a series of east coast tours with stops in many of the places seen in the film.
As Jay Proffitt, director of the tour staff at American Christian Tours told The Christian Post, the "Monumental" themed tours provided by their company not only visit the same places but also discuss the same concepts in the documentary.
While the Rice Lake, Wis.-based tour company offers several other Christian-themed tour options in Washington, D.C., to a primarily student-oriented audience, its "Monumental"-themed tours are geared more toward families and church groups. more >>
"Not Today," an award-winning movie that tackles human trafficking, is set to open in several major markets across America next month, with a mission to raise awareness about one of the most critical problems the world faces today.
"What we hope is that this will be a catalyst for conversation, if we can get the story out," said Matthew Cork, lead pastor at Friends Church in Yorba Linda, Calif., and executive producer of "Not Today," in an exclusive interview with The Christian Post.
"The people that we really believe that God has called us to work with is the Dalits – 300,000 million of them who have been in this type of slavery for over 3,000 years; and many people in America don't even know who we are." more >>
After only 10 days of fulfilling a vow to fast up to 40 days to raise $12,200 to finish a film God inspired him to make, a former pastor-turned-filmmaker, Eric "Doc" Benson, managed to raise more than enough money to finish his project, and he is thanking God for showing up.
Last Wednesday, just three days into his fast, The Christian Post reported on Benson's efforts to raise $12,200 through a crowd-funding campaign on indiegogo.com to finish a movie about a small church's struggle to deal with change in its congregation, titled "Seven Deadly Words". Benson had run out of funds to cover post-production costs and other expenses to finish the film and decided to seek God's help through his fast.
"I poured every hour, every dollar I could spare into making this movie happen," Benson had explained last week. "My wife, Annette, my boys, and I have emptied out our savings and invested our time and talents, because we feel God wants this film to be a blessing to people. Now, the only thing I have left to give is...myself," he said. more >>
A notable actor in film and television has stated that the Hollywood entertainment industry is full of the "least tolerant people" in the country.
Kevin Sorbo, star of television programs like "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" and "Andromeda," recently told the hosts of "Fox & Friends" about the climate of Hollywood.
"I certainly get into trouble in Hollywood for the some of the things I say but I am one of the true independent voices in Hollywood," said Sorbo. "I look at both sides of the aisle, look at who's going to really help this country … things aren't going that great right now. I think that's very obvious to most people." more >>
