Harvey Weinstein has set his sights squarely on the National Rifle Association.
The “Shakespeare in Love” producer told Howard Stern on his radio show Wednesday that the NRA is a “disaster area” before revealing a secret project.
“I shouldn’t say this, but I’ll tell it to you, Howard,” he said. “I’m going to make a movie with Meryl Streep, and we’re going to take this head-on. And they’re going to wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.”
Weinstein said the movie was a feature length motion picture “like a ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington’” and that when people left his movie, they would be thinking: “Gun stocks — I don’t want to be involved in that stuff. It’s going to be like crash and burn.”
Weinstein said he does not own a firearm.
“I don’t think we need guns in this country,” he said.
The NRA did not immediately respond for comment.
