Reagan Biopic Coming to Theatres in 2011

Ad Feedback

The life of former President Ronald Reagan will be featured in a new motion picture. The movie will be titled "Reagan" and is scheduled to be released next year.

The Hollywood Reporter said the film is based on the two best-selling biographies by author Paul Kengor -- The Crusader and God and Ronald Reagan, which focused on his faith.

The film will showcase the 40th U.S. president's childhood, acting career, and his terms as president.

Mark Joseph, a co-producer of the film, told the Hollywood Reporter that Americans loved Reagan. When he died they lined up to wait for 10 hours, just to watch his closed casket pass by.

"Only in Hollywood could you make an insulting, condescending movie about a much-loved historical figure. Hire an actor who loathed the man. Watch it flop and then somehow conclude that Americans don't want to see a movie about him," Joseph said. "I watched Americans line up and wait for 10 hours for the simple privilege of passing by his closed casket. They loved this man."
