Despite such tragic and widely debated events involving guns over the past year, such as Sandy Hook, polls suggest no decline in gun purchases anytime soon. But perhaps movie producer Harvey Weinstein and Oscar-nominated actress Meryl Streep will change that, as the duo are teaming up for an anti-gun movie said to shake the NRA (National Rifle Association) to its core.
Harvey Weinstein grabbed headlines earlier this year when he appealed the MPAA’s decision to tag the ripped-from-the-headlines documentary ‘Bully’ with an R rating. Ever the masterful marketer, Weinstein used the appeal to generate press for his movie. But there’s a much larger story brewing behind that flashy, attention-demanding move.
