AmeriGEDDON! an Interview with film maker Mike Norris (son of chuck Norris)
There are times that a movie, book, song, or some other form artistic expression comes along at precisely the right time to make a huge difference in the psyche of a community. Recently we have seen an outpouring of artistic expression that is just right to get us through these trying times. I myself, have been turning to music, books and movies as a way to get me through and more importantly as a source of inspiration for my own work. In the music area I have been deeply inspired by Jordan Page his “Ballad of LaVoy Finicum” and Heist Click’s “Super Nova.” I have noticed that certain movies come out just at the right time, encapsulating the inner-dialog of a generation. One film, that just might be part of our cultural memory when we look back upon this time period, could be the upcoming movie AmeriGEDDON. I believe it may serve as an expression of our fears and hopes in these turbulent days.
Film Maker Mike Norris was born to make movies, Son of legendary martial artist and action hero, Chuck Norris. Mike has been immersed in the film making industry since being a child growing up in a prominent movie star’s home . Mike has also awakened to the ugly truth happening behind the federal curtain. This film deals with many of the subjects that Mike feels will affect the world that his and all of our children will inherit. They include gun confiscation, martial law, EMP attack, false flags and more. Mike is also a devout Christian and family man. I believe that it is this combination of history and character that lends itself to Mike telling such a powerful story.
In this interview we talk about what first drew Mike to making films and what his inspired him to make AmeriGEDDON. From there we also talk about his thoughts on the Oath Keepers and the recent events in Burns, Oregon and Bundy Ranch. The murder of LaVoy and the rounds of arrests we are currently seeing of those of us who were involved. If you have had your interested peaked by the trailer for AmeriGEDDON, you should invest the time to watch this interview and share it with your like minded friends.
The Following is from the official AmeriGEDDON website:
AMERIGEDDON, coming to theaters nationwide May 13, 2016, has been described as “the movie the establishment doesn’t want you to see.” Showing what happens when a not-so-future U.S. government conspires with the United Nations to stage an attack on the energy grid, AMERIGEDDON depicts a country ruled by martial law in which citizens are stripped of their constitutional rights and their guns. A group of patriots fight back and rescue the country from slipping into irreversible chaos.
AMERIGEDDON’s release in an election year is not coincidental. The film illustrates a dystopian future all patriots must guard against and is a call to action to preserve the Second Amendment and stop executive rule by fiat. Director Mike Norris, son of Chuck Norris, asks for like-minded Americans to support the film.
“The fact that a recent poll showed a majority of Americans are enraged with the federal government points to a frenzy of unrest with the dictatorial way in which our country has been run,” said Norris. “My family has long been involved in protecting the rights of Americans. We are concerned about the future and and see this film as a call to action. We urge people to join us in theaters and show Hollywood and politicians that true patriots will fight for their rights and want to see their values represented on-screen.”
A collaboration between Norris and entrepreneur and writer Gary Heavin, AMERIGEDDON seizes on fact-based threats and asks the ultimate question, “What happens when government turns on the people it’s supposed to protect?”
Executive Producer Gary Heavin believes the film’s message warning is timely. “We made a movie that is fun to watch but it is based in reality. In AMERIGEDDON, survivors of an EMP attack on the United States must live in a state of martial law led by the United Nations. American soldiers must decide whom they serve, second amendment rights are curtailed and food, water and survival become our primary concerns—unfortunately, these are all likely scenarios resulting from a very real threat,” said Heavin. “I believe if we can entertain while we inform, more people will wake up; and if we hope to restore our freedom we must share the truth with as many people as possible.”
Co-written by Norris and Heavin, the film features Marshall Teague (THE ROCK), Annalynn McCord (“Dallas”, “90210”), Dina Meyer (“Starship Troopers”), Spencer Neville (“Days of Our Lives”), Mike Norris (“Walker, Texas Ranger”), Diane Ladd (JOY) and India Eisley (“The Secret Life of the American Teenager”).
