Hollywood’s plan to dethrone Reagan’s legacy

Hollywood is planning to take down another conservative icon and revise history for future generations.

Having already trivialized Margaret Thatcher with “The Iron Lady” — in which Meryl Streep portrayed the British prime minister as senile and pathetic — now it’s Ronald Reagan’s turn.

This year’s “Black List” of the best unproduced scripts making the studio rounds includes “Reagan” by Mike Rosolio.

The logline reads: “When Ronald Reagan falls into dementia at the start of his second term, an ambitious intern is tasked with convincing the commander in chief that he is an actor playing the president in a movie.”

Fox News analyst Monica Crowley told me, “The more iconic and impactful a conservative is, the more determined the left becomes to destroy him or her — along with their ideas and legacy.”
