Introduction

Stephen Strang: Everyone knows that Roe v. Wade was the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in this country. I remember when it happened in 1973. Today, our country is very divided, and more than 50 million babies have been aborted. Now there's a new movie called Roe v. Wade that promises to tell the truth about what really happened. I had the privilege of talking to the producer, Nick Loeb, about the movie, why he did it, and most importantly about what he hopes this pro-life movie will accomplish. Here's my interview with actor and producer, Nick Loeb.

 

Roe v Wade on Charisma

·         Movie to Reveal the ‘Real Truth’ Behind Roe v. Wade

 

Stephen Strang: Tell me why you wanted to produce this movie Roe v. Wade.

Nick Loeb: It was interesting, When I first was talking to somebody about potentially making a movie … well, I'm pro-life, so why would I want to make a pro-choice movie? I was asked, do you know what happened during the history of how it got to the court and how the court decided on its ruling. There’s really a pro-life story behind it. The more I researched and learned … I ended up reading over 40 books about the movement and the case, the court transcripts, letters between the justices, I found it fascinating how it came to be. It was almost like an Oliver Stone conspiracy film. So, I thought it would be great for cinema. And I also thought it would be great because I cared so much about the cause and the moment.

Stephen Strang: I know that your trailer came out very recently and you're going to show it at the March for Life. When is the movie actually going to come out?

Nick Loeb: When we release it, it's just really a rough teaser. The official trailer will be released by the distributors. We are currently still in post-production. So, we've got about three months left of color, sound via fax music to go, and we should be ready to show the film, really start casting the film, some time at the end of March. I think we're looking at potentially during the NRB.

Stephen Strang: Let's talk about the opposition to this movie. You know, that's kind of been the story so far. I've looked at some of the articles including articles that we've run on Charismanews.com, and it's the opposition; the actors that walked off the set, the synagogue that locked you out, those kinds of things. Why do you think the opposition and the pushback has been so large?

Nick Loeb: Listen, it's a visceral topic. Our country is divided on the issue. I think if we were making a pro-choice movie, I think you would get the same sort of reaction from the pro-life side. Although we have had you know our challenges that have been tumultuous, we also reap the rewards of being on the right side. We had a lot of people who worked for free. We had people who donated money. We had people who offered their homes, locations. We had an outpouring of support from people who believed in what we were doing.https://www.charismapodcastnetwork.com/show/strangreport/4a161683ad354e0b80090718021e8d69

Stephen Strang: But now that the movie is beginning to come out, Facebook won't let you advertise it and some other things like that. So how are you going to get the word out?

Nick Loeb: You’re 100 percent right. We've had some challenges with social media. We have been very lucky to be able to receive a lot of press while we were shooting. We had over 100 articles, not just on the right but a lot of mainstream news. Everything from Newsweek to Yahoo News, Vanity Fair, The Hollywood Reporter, The Washington Post. Even in just two days we've had a repeat article is in The Hollywood Reporter, The Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, the Daily Mail and we've been very lucky. The film has been able to garner mainstream press. On top of that, we will need to go out and raise money for marketing as well. And so, we'll do that in conjunction with our distributor. And so, people who go to roevwade.com can contribute to help us market it.

Stephen Strang: Who is your distributor, and how widely is it going to be distributed?

Nick Loeb: We're in the middle of a negotiated deal right now with a distributor. So, until that's all done, I can’t really get into the specifics.

Stephen Strang: Well, that's understandable. Let me ask you about getting out the word. You can get press and a lot of it can kind of be press and the end result would be, stay away from this movie, it is bad. These people are horrible, let's all boycott this movie. But on the other side, the people that are glad that the truth is finally being told or they want to see it out of curiosity about what really happened. How can we get a groundswell going among these people because a lot of times, in fact I'm a publisher, and we've published some books on pro-life. The people that are already convinced don't want to read the book. And of course, the other people would never touch it with a 10-foot pole. And those books were not very successful. I don't know if that would really affect a movie or not, ut it makes me wonder. So, what can Christian people do, or even people on the right as you put it?

Nick Loeb: I think this is a little different. We went out to make a Hollywood movie, not a small,  independent preachy pro-life film. It is full of action, suspense. If you see the trailer, there's shootings, there’s car chases, there's police, there's conspiracy. Compared to a lot of faith-based films that are out there today, we've got an incredible cast that all of us grew up. A lot of people want to go to see the actors, the cast and the action or the suspense and so we went out to really make a fun, interesting, exciting movie.
