Milo Yiannopoulos, Tomi Lahren cast for anti-abortion Roe v. Wade movie
Conservative figures Milo Yiannopoulos and Tomi Lahren have reportedly been cast in a secretive anti-abortion movie project about the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, the Daily Beast reported Friday.
Yiannopoulos, a right-wing provocateur, will play British abortion doctor David Sopher. The Daily Beast reported that he will be depicted as performing abortions during his single scene in the film.
Conservative commentator Lahren will play the daughter of Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun, who authored the opinion in Roe v. Wade. She will portray a Planned Parenthood volunteer who confronts her father, according to the Daily Beast.
Other cast and crew members are largely unaware of Yiannopoulos and Lahren’s roles in the film, according to the outlet.
The Hollywood Reporter first reported on the film earlier this week, revealing that it was being filmed in New Orleans under a fake title.
Nick Loeb is directing the film, which stars other conservative figures like Jon Voight and Stacey Dash.
Loeb told the Reporter that the movie has struggled to find locations that will agree to let the project shoot there after learning about its content.
