Daryl Hannah Cozies Up to Greedy Lying Bastards

First came the February 7 Hollywood Reporter article by Jay A. Fernandez. Followed today by a rip-roaring press release.

All that’s left are the have-fun-with-it headlines in connection with the news that actress Daryl Hannah is on board as executive producer of the upcoming documentary Greedy Lying Bastards. In production since 2009, the screed against the fossil fuels industry boasts a relatively large production budget of $1.5 million. From this morning’s announcement:

Author and political activist-turned filmmaker Craig Rosebraugh documents the impact of an industry that has continually put profits before people, waged a campaign of lies designed to thwart measures to combat climate change, used its clout to minimize infringing regulations and undermined the political process in the U.S. and abroad.

It’s a pleasure to read a release that prioritizes eight paragraphs of environmental accomplishments above those attained by Hannah as a Hollywood director and actress. Watch the doc trailer here.
