Weinstein: “I don’t think we need guns in this country. And I hate it. I think the NRA is a disaster area…”

weinsteinWeinstein Update: Over at HotAirEd Morrissey has comments:

Congratulations, genius. You’re setting out to make a movie that will annoy more than 60 million Americans who responsibly own firearms.  What a great marketing strategy that will be! Why, this new project will take … the same oh-so-courageous-and-tediously-didactic path as the anti-war films Lions for Lambs and Rendition, two films which bombed at the box office in 2007, both of which also starred … Meryl Streep.

 “I’m making a movie that the NRA will hate…”

— Weinstein

Let’s muse on the irony, though, of Harvey Weinstein making this declaration. How much gunfire went into Pulp Fiction, which he exec-produced? The 2008 Rambo sequel? Jackie Brown?

 The man who fills screens with flying bullets on a regular basis told Howard Stern yesterday that he’s going to make the NRA

“…wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.”

Good luck with that. We won’t hold our breath.
