Glenn Beck to tackle Hollywood instead of ‘wasting his life’ on politics

Radio talk show host Glenn Beck is transforming himself once again, this time into a movie producer.

The media entrepreneur is in the midst of converting a 72,000-square-foot movie studio in Irving, Texas, into a film center for Mercury Radio Arts, his parent company, he told The Hollywood Reporter.

Beck, who earns nearly $60 million annually from writing for TheBlaze and hosting his radio show, said he intends to produce three movies. One will be set in ancient history, one in modern history, and one will be faith-based. He also revealed that he bought back from Sony the rights to his best-selling book, “The Christmas Sweater.”

“The meaning of ‘The Christmas Sweater’ is that there are second chances,” he said. “It is based not only on my childhood but a dream that I had as an adult after I sobered up.”

POLL:Have you unfriended Glenn Beck?

The recovering addict became a huge New York City radio and TV sensation before packing it all up and moving to Texas.

“I bought a movie studio for a reason,” Beck said. “I have every intent of finding great artists who will tell great stories that aren’t typical.”

“Everybody thinks they know who I am because of my stint on Fox,” he added. “That was two years of my life. I’m much more into culture than I am into politics, and that’s where I intend to make my stand.”

To prove his point, he told The Reporter that he drew inspiration from movies like “Divergent,” “Lone Survivor,” “True Grit” and “The Magnificent Seven.”

“Hollywood is missing this moment to reconnect with the American people because they don’t speak the language,” he said. “Some of it is out of spite – they might not like people of faith.”

Beck said he wants to produce movies that are not preachy but that are “great for the whole family.”

“We’re beginning to agree that Republicans and Democrats suck – they’ve built this machine to grind people into the ground,” he said.” I hate this stuff. I hate politics. I hate politicians, and I feel I’m wasting my life. Don’t we all know what’s happening? George W. Bush was taking us down a road, and Barack Obama is taking us down that same road. What difference does it make? I don’t want to waste my life anymore.”

I still think exposing the politicians and their power hungry attitudes is important because if someone doesn't do it with a name and reputation, people will never be educated enough to make a difference at the polls.

Obsolutely right SammysDad:  There are good and bad politicians and if we don't weed out the bad ones, we will all suffer. I believe the dems are far more corrupt by using lies and deceit to sway the public. That party is hijacked by lefties that prefer socialism and government dominance than basic constitutional doctrine and govenment by the people, for the people ( all people ). They seek to keep people poor and dependent and sucker them for their votes. This is obvious. Glenn Beck is deciding to make a difference by producing conservative media which will help. There are many others that will continue to directly fight the politicians that lie and cheat. 

Hey richard to bad you are a liberal progressive democrat that just can not stand the truth.  Beck is big and large because he speaks the truth and he will  be successful because of that.  While your liberal progressive television and radios are loosing viewers by the thousands beck continue to group and add views at the expense of others.  Why, because beck is not political he is american and the american people are hungry for the truth and honesty.  His movies will be successful with large audiences because the every day person will be able to relate to it and the whole family can do go to a movie without killing, rap music,sex and vuglar language. 

I will chime in here and agree with Richard. I have never cared much for Beck's big mouth and bravado. His latest tirade against those who have supported and come to the aid of rancher Cliven Bundy really set my face against him. Obviously, he has a large following and I get that. I am just not one of them. I am also a Tea Party member and an Oathkeeper.

He has been brainwashed himself to not see the reality of what parts of the parties are real and what are not. Maybe it is because of his religion or his past addictions, but he seems to throw in the towel when he hits bumps in the road of life.


care to explain to me what part of the parties are real?  

The proof that Government is too big is that folks spend so much time talking politics today. 

While I believe it is necessary to be engaged now, it is only so we can restore Government back to a size that once again becomes more inconsequiential in our daily lives and so we can once again get back to things that are really important, like family and chosen interests.

However, those who claim that there is no difference between Republicans and Democrats must not have been paying attention during the vote on Obamacare. But just as Progressive Liberalism has taken control of the Democrat Party, Patriotic Constitutional Conservatives must counterbalance this leftist swing with influence and more control of the Republican Party. But if the American people do not 'swing' with us there are few choices remaining, isn't that so? 


I don't have any disagreement with your post and do have a lot of agreement, especially on extreme must be countered with extreme. At this point it's imperative, since the argument of slowing down the arrival of our nation's transformation no longer is valid - the transformation is here. Slowing down their efforts to transform our country no longer has any benefit, their efforts MUST be reversed now.

but.. on the point of no difference - yes, Rs did vote against obiecare.. but they have also brought us equal atrocities such as DHS. In this way, there is no high level difference. D destroys this principle, R destroys that one.

THE NEW MOTTO: "What difference does it make at this point. Watch a movie."

Good for Glenn!!  He is one of FEW who will admit when he has made a mistake, explain it all and GO ON!!!   BECAUSE of his FOX show, MANY, MANY people were "turned around" politically, I know a lot of them, and future elections will show it.  In the meantime, Glenn goes on. He WANTS to do the movie thing, he has the money to do it,MORE POWER TO HIM!!!  


Yeah, don't worry about politics Glen while the country goes down a shithole! Use your popularity to try and right this ship of state.

Agreed Dad of Sammy, but the sad truth is that the only propaganda the dumbed-down generations might comprehend comes from Hollyweird.  More effective maybe, than preaching to the converted.

Tea Party Wishes You And Your Family
A Happy Thanksgiving 

Thanksgiving Proclamation, 3 October 1789

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor—and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be—That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks—for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation—for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war—for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed—for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted—for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions—to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually—to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed—to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord—To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us—and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New-York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

George Washington
President of the United States of America
