Kevin Sorbo, who stars in God’s Not Dead, has disclosed that the movie, which earned an estimated $8.6 million over the weekend, cost just $2 million to produce and expressed confidence that it will encourage Hollywood to produce more faith-based, family movies. “Trust me, Hollywood will make more of those,” he told BeliefNet.com columnist John W. Kennedy. “It’s called show business. They want to make the money. They can’t be happy with the 107-million dollar loss they had on a movie like The Lone Ranger with big-name stars.” Sorbo also told the website that he believes he has been blacklisted in Hollywood because of his iconoclastic views. Leftist producers, he said, “scream for tolerance, they scream for freedom of speech but it you disagree at all with what they’re saying then they can blacklist you.” The conservative Breitbart.com posted Sorbo’s comments on its site, adding, “Hollywood is run mostly by a gang of intolerant leftists who simply refuse to hire anyone who does not toe the left-wing line.” Hollywood, however, is also home to many prominent conservative stars and producers, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Caan, Clint Eastwood, Mel Gibson, Bruce Willis, Robert Duvall and others.
