Upcoming movie ‘My Son Hunter’ scored a Bond villain and ‘Die Hard’ FBI agent to direct the revelation about the ‘nefarious’ life of the president’s son, DailyMail.com can reveal exclusively.
Robert Davi, 70, has signed a contract with conservative filmmakers and husband and wife team Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney to direct the film because he believes the “conservative movement” lacks left-level entertainment content.
“There are a lot of great movies that people are making, but they aren’t as captivating as you would say we’re from Hollywood, which is mostly progressive left. And it’s always been that way,” Davi told DailyMail.com in a phone interview on Monday.
One of Davi’s main concerns is to ensure that the story of Hunter, 51, is told in a “tasteful” way that “humanizes” him and the struggles he went through, while also exposing the reality surrounding the son of the world’s most powerful leader. .
“It tells the story, but it humanizes the characters,” he said of the script. “It tells facts, it tells what happened, and at the same time it’s a delicate story because — you know.”
He then revealed, “I have relatives who struggled with addiction and some who still struggle with addiction. So there is a sensitivity to that and not to demonize something – a story.’
“It’ll show most of it tastefully – because, you know, it’s interesting… you’re showing the good with the bad,” Davi continued. ‘You know, that’s life. And it’s nothing he doesn’t admit.’
While he plans to make the film “tasteful, fair and factual,” Davi said they will “take a dramatic license to simplify things.”
“I want it to be grim, but I don’t want it to be abhorrent,” he added when he denied there is any purpose to the film’s rating.
David has appeared in about 150 movies and TV shows and has recently ventured into directing. Pictured above, Davi arrives at the 2nd Monte-Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean in Monaco on September 26, 2018
‘My Son Hunter’ is a biopic about Hunter’s ‘elitist party lifestyle, dodgy business dealings, family drama and corruption’. The movie was supposed to start filming this summer, but is still working on contracts with actors
Davi has starred in about 150 films and TV shows, including the role of villain Franz Sanchez in the James Bond film ‘License to Kill’; FBI Special Agent Big Johnson in ‘Die Hard’; and Jake Fratelli, one of the main villain’s sons and sidekicks, in cult classic “The Goonies.”
More recently, the actor ventured into the world of directing.
Davi says he feels compelled to direct this film because he fears that issues surrounding Hunter Biden are under-reported.
“It was just a really compelling story,” Davi said. “I wondered why there was so little reporting around the world, or at least research—why not enough research was being done.”
“Most people don’t know all the details about it,” he added. “Meanwhile, we have some great facts.”
“It must be investigated, it must be told.”
Davi says the film will be exhibit and entertainment, and wants it to evoke the styles of “American Hustle,” “Wolf of Wall Street” and “Blow” by “telling a story, but in an entertaining way.” and edgy way’.
“It’s a dramatization, it’s a film clip of facts that happened and dramatized in a way to get the point across and also help the audience understand what they’re missing in terms of this story — and what isn’t explained or told.” ,” he told DailyMail.com. “Here’s a man who admits to being high on a crack pipe while meeting leaders from other parts of the world, making deals, and getting $83,000 a month for five years.”
The director of “My son Hunter” describes himself as “very politically inclined” and claims that he closely followed events with the president’s son before signing up for the project.

“That was part of the frustration of it being whitewashed by the mainstream media – most mainstream media,” he said. “And most people in the world — I mean, if you ask people in Europe, they really don’t know anything about the story.”
“Most people have no idea, and I think once they see what’s in this story, it’s going to be interesting.”
“I mean look,” Davi went on, “they’ve made a movie called ‘Watergate’, you know what I mean, about something less nefarious. And that’s because progressive Hollywood doesn’t tell stories.”
“There is a responsibility we have in society to tell the truth, to expose the truth.”
DailyMail.com reported exclusively in March that the conservative filmmakers embarked on a project for a film detailing Hunter’s “elitist party lifestyle, dodgy business dealings, family drama and corruption.”
Much of the film is set in Ukraine and shooting is set to begin in Serbia in the summer of 2021. However, contracts are still nailed down for actors.
McAleer stated in a statement to DailyMail.com at the time of the film’s announcement in March: “The media and big tech have covered up the New York Post bombshell report showing the depth of corruption in the Biden family.” stopped.’
The film’s producer refers to a bombshell report published shortly before the 2020 presidential election detailing the extent of some of Hunter Biden’s corruption. This included revelations about what was found on his laptop’s hard drive when it was left at a computer repair shop and correspondence he had with foreign business executives.
Social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook choked and, in some cases, banned and blocked users from sharing the Post’s message.

An entertaining and enjoyable movie is the best way to [do that]… If the media don’t do their job, we do it for them’
“The truth deserves to be told and it should be seen by as many people as possible,” McAleer said at the time. “An entertaining and enjoyable film is the best way to tell the story of the Biden family corruption and make sure as many people as possible are informed about it.”
“If the media isn’t doing their job, we’re doing it for them,” he said.
It is still unclear which actors have signed up to play the various roles in the film, including Hunter and Joe Biden.
The story, David said, is told through the eyes of a 22-year-old progressive woman who was “pushed into the life of Hunter Biden.”
He said that while the subject is serious, it’s also funny and has a “satiric bite” with “characters you think aren’t nice, but you understand what they’re going through.”
The film is raising money to fund production and has incentives for different donation levels
If someone donates $50,000, they get an extra spot in the film that “may require international travel,” but if the donation is doubled, they get a speaking role
