Robert Davi of License To Kill and Die Hard acting fame is directing the pic, which comes from conservative Irish producers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney (Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer). The project has a $1.8M budget and will shoot in Serbia in late October for four weeks, a release stated.
My Son Hunter will be primarily set in the Ukraine, the filmmakers said. Last year, Hunter Biden found himself at the center of a Donald Trump-propelled conspiracy theory that he and Joe Biden had engaged in corrupt activities; accusations that were denied and debunked.
Fox has become a figurehead for the ‘anti-woke’ right-wing in the UK. Earlier this year he undertook an ill-fated campaign to become the next mayor of London, securing less than 2% of the vote.
“I accepted this role not because of the politics, I found it a real page turner filled with humour, astonishing revelations, tension, and drama,” commented Fox. “The script is a brilliant, surreal comedy, made all the more surreal and funnier by the fact that all of it is true – he’s a fascinating man and his story is fascinating too. As an ardent advocate of free speech, it is the role of drama to hold a mirror up to nature. This film is an important push back against creeping censorious monochromatic film making.”
