President Obama has a starring role in Harvey Weinstein's "SEAL Team Six" which will be released on November 4th, two days before the presidential election.
While Weinstein and company have tried to play down the possibility of this project being a political wet kiss, the New York Times sees it otherwise.
But the star turn is virtually certain to bolster claims that the approximately 90-minute film amounts to a political stunt. Set for a prime-time debut on Nov. 4 on the National Geographic Channel, and a release the next day on Netflix, the film — “SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden” — is being backed by Harvey Weinstein, a longtime Democratic contributor and one of the Obama campaign’s most vigorous backers. Mr. Weinstein bought the rights to the film for about $2.5 million at the Cannes festival in May.
