Sound of Freedom became the surprise box office hit of 2023.

Fans are wondering what’s next for the people behind the film.

And Sound of Freedom’s producers made this shocking decision about their next movie.

Sound of Freedom came out of nowhere to become one of the biggest movies of last summer.

The movie bested established Hollywood franchises like Mission Impossible and Indiana Jones at the box office despite having a small marketing budget.

Word of mouth turned the movie based on the life of former Homeland Security agent Tim Ballard’s fight against child sex trafficking into a cultural phenomenon.

Legendary filmmaker says he was approached by Sound of Freedom producers

Playwright and filmmaker David Mamet is one of the few outspoken conservatives in Hollywood.

He spoke with The Daily Wire’s Andrew Klavan about his more than four-decade-long career in the movie business.

Mamet slammed “brain dead” left-wing Hollywood executives and said that he was no longer working with the industry’s major studios.

The screenwriter said he had been approached by the producers of Sound of Freedom – which was distributed by independent studio Angel Studios – about writing the screenplay for a film about Hunter Biden.

Sound of Freedom team wanted to make a Hunter Biden movie

“These guys who did the Sound of Freedom, they came to me and they said, ‘You want to write a movie for us?’ I said, ‘Yeah sure, what do you got?’ They said they wanted to do a movie about Hunter Biden,” Mamet said.

Mamet explained how he tried to put together a deal for the Hunter Biden screenplay.

“So, I thought about it for a while and I said, ‘Um, okay.’ I said, ‘but here’s what.’ I said, you know, you’re going to pay me a couple of bucks, nothing much, maybe a back end,” Mamet stated. “But the deal is you give me half of that couple of bucks now, you give me the other half of the couple of bucks when I had the script in, we’re done.”

Hunter Biden’s numerous scandals and glaring personal flaws would seemingly be rich material for a biopic.

But Mamet said creating a biopic about the President’s embattled son was a serious challenge.

“I’m not going to call him Hunter Biden and it’s not going to be a travelogue,” Mamet said.

The challenge according to him is coming up with a theme for the movie rather than listing off a series of significant events in the subject’s life.

“So, the question is, if it’s not interesting, it doesn’t matter if it’s Hunter Biden. And if it is interesting, it doesn’t matter if it’s Hunter Biden. People don’t care, right?” Mamet asked.

A biopic about Hunter Biden would be a surprising career twist for Sound of Freedom’s producers.
