Nick Loeb and Cathy Allyn are working on a secretive anti-abortion film that “chronicles the 1973 Supreme Court decision that guaranteed a woman’s right to an abortion,” reports The Daily Beast. The film features Milo Yiannopoulos and Tomi Lahren, as well as conservative pundit Stacey Dash, who will play Mildred Jefferson, a founder of the National Right to Life Committee. Several other outspoken conservative actors will portray Supreme Court justices. Filming reportedly began on June 15 and is supposed to wrap by July 15.

The Daily Beast reports that the film, which is being filmed under the title 1973 but is actually entitled Roe v. Wade, includes several graphic scenes depicting aborted fetuses. The crew told The Daily Beast that the filmmakers misrepresented the project from day one and misled location contacts in order to convince them to film at their respective spots. The filmmakers also misled the cast and crew, many of whom arrived on set and were shocked by the extremity of its point of view. The film’s director and first assistant director dropped out on the first day of shooting, The Daily Beast reports, and a customer, location manager and several other crew members left once they realized how severely anti-abortion the content was.

The Daily Beast reports that two cast members have been kept secret from the rest of the group: Lahren and Yiannopoulos. Lahren portrays Supreme Court Justice Blackmun’s daughter, Sally, a Planned Parenthood volunteer who challenges her dad, and Yiannopoulos plays Dr. David Sopher, a British abortion doctor.
