Harvey Weinstein has secret film project to destroy NRA

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.
