Grey Frederickson, the Academy-award winning producer of The Godfather trilogy has teamed with former Senator Fred Thompson to produce Persecuted, a political thriller examining the fragility of our First Amendment rights. The film will be presented at CPAC 2014, both Friday at 8PM and Saturday at 1PM.
Persecuted follows the dramatic tale of a well-known televangelist who refuses to stand with Congress and the President to endorse legislation that would seemingly limit the expression of Christianity. Upon taking a stand, government officials do everything in their power to ruin the bold preacher’s life and career.
The film is written and directed by Daniel Lusko, who expertly touches on political and social issues that seem to hit very close to home. The all-star cast includes Liberty Alliance’s own Christian Comedian, Brad Stine, Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson, James Remar (Dexter, Django Unchained), Dean Stockwell (Air Force One, Battlestar Galactica) Roaul Trujilo (Riddick, Apocalypto, Cowboys & Aliens), and Bruce Davison (X-Men, X2).
This conservative film is so important, that even the Hollywood Reporter has taken note. The prestigious magazine interviewed the cast and producers earlier this week.
