The newest project for film director Mike Norris and producer Gary Heavin, “Amerigeddon,” is set to hit theaters May 13.
Norris, the eldest son of martial arts, film and television star and WND exclusive columnist Chuck Norris, told WND he hopes that it’s entertaining and that people come away with a message. Things got just a little bit eerie while the film was being made, with many “bizarre coincidences,” he said.
For example, the film’s plot includes a nuclear attack, and now North Korea is threatening the U.S. The movie also touches on weapon confiscation, just as President Obama has been pressing for more gun control.
Then, one of the heroes is faced with the heavy hand of government while in real life the federal government’s massive Jade Helm military exercise in the Southwest has raised personal liberty concerns.
In the movie, an electromagnetic pulse attack over the U.S. wipes out the energy grid, along with all electronic devices, such as phones, credit card processing systems and computers.
The American government reacts to the attack, which was staged with the help of the U.N., by declaring martial law and stripping Americans of their constitutional rights and their guns.
“Our government, bought and paid for and ruled from the bench, is our bad guy,” Norris explained. “The heroes are a group of Americans who say, ‘We have a Constitution and a Bill of Rights and we will not be trampled on.’”
“Amerigeddon” touches on globalist issues such as the New World Order and the National Defense Authorization Act.
“We’ve just taken our story and stripped it down to real people, real issues, real things that are happening,” he said.
“It is a movie, it is fictional. But it is very much a newsreel,” he said. “If you were to just open a newspaper and look at what’s going on in the world, this is our movie.”
Norris said he has been making Christian films since he directed “Walker, Texas Ranger,” his father’s television hit, in the 1990s.
He said he hopes “Amerigeddon” makes people think about the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Second Amendment, because there are real world implications.
For example, “If we get the wrong Supreme Court judge, it’s over,” he said.
