Hollywood Movie To Kill President Obama
This isn’t the first time a movie studio has waded into the controversial idea of assassinating a sitting President of the United States but the concept seems no less disconcerting.
The Daily Best is reporting that 20th Century Fox’s upcoming British spy-thriller featuring Samual L. Jackson and Colin Firth will depict the murder of President Obama. Although not mentioned by name, the scene that’s sure to get tongues wagging, depicts the Leader of the Free World from behind and the implication is clear.
‘As rare as it is to see the death of a sitting President depicted onscreen, it’s almost as rare to see Obama fictionalized in film or TV at all, though the POTUS popped up briefly as a plot device in 2010’s Hindi drama My Name Is Khan, and in 2013’s Lee Daniels’ The Butler. Kingsman certainly doesn’t take aim as pointedly as 2006’s British fictional docudrama Death of a President, in which President George W. Bush is assassinated by a sniper’s bullet.’ The Daily Beast
While 20th Century Fox isn’t the first studio to present the idea, it is a first by a major studio which reaches a much wider audience.
Kingsman: The Secret Service premiers in theaters across the country on Friday.
