Sarah Palin: The Movie

The picture — which was made and funded by conservative filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon, according to the Hollywood Reporter — is slated to open next month in Iowa and may also become available via OnDemand. The film reportedly promotes Palin’s potential as a presidential candidate and features interviews with numerous Palin supporters. The voice of Palin is used via narration, but the movie does not contain an on-camera interview with the former governor of Alaska.

The film reportedly came about after Palin asked an aide to contact Bannon about helping her create a series of videos regarding her decision to step down as governor. Bannon reportedly decided to make a movie instead, and financed it with $1 million of his own money. The Web site Real Clear Politics was first to break the story.

Is there enough interest in a Sarah Palin movie to justify opening “The Undefeated” in more theaters? Could this be the political flick that becomes the summer’s surprisingly buzzy hit, a la 2004’s “Fahrenheit 9/11”? Will Michael Moore make a documentary about why the Sarah Palin movie was made? And how does HBO’s version of Sarah Palin, Julianne Moore, feel about all of this.

So many questions.

When she isn’t at a movie theater or writing about movies, Jen Chaney is ... um ... probably at home, watching a movie.
