Actor Antonio Sabato Jr. Announces Plans for Conservative Movie Studio
By Cooper Dowd, Contributing Writer
Actor Antonio Sabato Jr. recently announced plans for a conservative movie studio.
“We are putting together a plan to create a conservative movie studio for all patriots to do projects that Hollywood would never do,” he wrote in a recent tweet. “No more blacklisting and no more injustice from the socialist’s elites.”
According to the 48-year-old Sabato, Hollywood blacklisted him due to his political affiliations, which spurred him on to create a movie studio that pursues projects Hollywood avoids, regardless of the political climate.
Before Sabato’s struggle in Hollywood began in 2016, he starred in several popular soap operas, such as GENERAL HOSPITAL, MELROSE PLACE, and THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL.
After the outspoken actor supported the presidency of Donald Trump, Sabato was forced to move states and switch jobs to support his family.
“All my representatives left me, from agents to managers to commercial agents,” Sabato said. “I literally had to move, find a new job to survive and take care of my kids.”
In a March interview with Variety, Sabato talked about the rejection he faced in Hollywood.
“It’s a disgrace.” Sabato said. “It’s tough, because if you’re in that environment in Hollywood and you have something to say that they don’t like, they’re going to let you know.”
Although the adjustment was not without its difficulties, Sabato claims that he stands by his values and that it made him stronger.
“My integrity is intact. What I believe in is still intact,” Sabato Jr. said. “What doesn’t break you makes you stronger—that’s what they say. So I’m stronger than ever, and I didn’t have to lie about who I am.”
After posting the tweet about his plans for the conservative movie studio, Sabato added later that the studio already accepted their first project, TRAILBLAZERS, and encouraged like-minded producers to join him in the endeavor.
“To all conservative producers who want to make a change this is the time, get in touch with me, and be part of our team,” he wrote. “Right now we are In pre-production with Trail Blazers our first in line for many more & first to start our studio.”
IMDB lists the TRAIL BLAZERS movie as a Western Drama expected to release in 2021.
“This is the ultimate battle between good and evil, between darkness and light, between God and Satan himself,” reads the IMDB description.
