Anti-Trump Movie “The Apprentice” Still Unsold, But Producers Include Al Pacino’s Baby Mama and Andy Cohen


You may remember Noor Alfallah. The 29 year old had a baby with 83 year old Oscar winner Al Pacino a year ago after telling him she couldn’t get pregnant. Her father had a $3 million judgement against him from the IRS. (See below.)

Somehow, Noor has turned into a movie producer. She’s listed among the record 45 names who put money into “The Apprentice,” the Cannes film showing Donald Trump raping first wife Ivana.

Ali Abbasa directed the film from a screenplay by former journalist Gabriel Sherman. (He was also behind the Roger Ailes book and mini series.) So far there are no takers for “The Apprentice” so it can be released to theaters. That’s too bad, because Jeremy Strong and Sebastian Stan have gotten terrific reviews.

Of course, Trump sent a cease and desist letter to the producers, which may have put a damper on things. Still, the movie will be released. If Harvey Weinstein were in business, he’d have bought it and turned it into an event.

Alfallah is not the only unusual name on the list of 45 producers. Another one is Andy Cohen, the Bravo guy who invented the Real Housewives. Maybe he’ll choose Noor as one of the housewives from this experience. The bigger question is where did she get the money to invest in this film? Pacino?
