You knew it was coming, and just in time to revive some wingnuts' hopes of a Palin presidential bid. Oh, and the title is just...Palinesque. "The Undefeated" is a 2-hour "epic film" about...Sarah Palin. Move over to make room for her ego, please. It is produced by Steve Bannon, a former Goldman-Sachs executive turned conservative filmaker. Other titles he's produced include Border War: The Battle Over Illegal Immigration, Fire from the Heartland, and Battle for America with Dick Morris, under the Citizens United Productions banner.
Via Real Clear Politics:
The fruits of that initial conversation are now complete. The result is a two-hour-long, sweeping epic, a rough cut of which Bannon screened privately for Sarah and Todd Palin last Wednesday in Arizona, where Alaska's most famous couple has been rumored to have purchased a new home. When it premieres in Iowa next month, the film is poised to serve as a galvanizing prelude to Palin's prospective presidential campaign -- an unconventional reintroduction to the nation that she and her political team have spent months eagerly anticipating, even as Beltway Republicans have largely concluded that she won't run.
RealClearPolitics was recently given an exclusive screening of a rough cut of the now finished film, which Bannon designed, in part, to help catapult Palin from the presidential afterthought she has become in the eyes of many pundits directly to the front lines of the 2012 GOP conversation.
Palin initially learned about Bannon's work after she saw one of his previous films about the origins of the tea party movement, "Generation Zero," which premiered last year in Nashville and was later aired in prime time on the Fox News Channel. Impressed, Palin promoted "Generation Zero" via Twitter before later reaching out to Bannon about creating something to highlight her record in Alaska, where her performance in office was overshadowed by her resignation eight months after the 2008 presidential election.
We can only hope it does as well as Atlas Shrugged did at the box office.
