Charles and David Koch are the libertarian-conservative industrialists that many in the Hollywood Left love to hate. But a Wednesday exclusive by The Hollywood Reporter may prove a shocking plot twist to lefties in Tinseltown. 

The Koch brothers have a financial stake in some successful motion pictures of late, including summer blockbuster hits “Wonder Woman” and “Dunkirk,” THR reported.

Of course, RatPac-Dune Entertainment has also had its share of flops this year, including “CHIPs,” “King Arthur” and “Unforgettable.”

THR cited unnamed sources who said that the brothers own a significant stake in RatPac-Dune Entertainment, and that there’s a Trump Cabinet connection of sorts.

“Now-Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin brought the brothers in as investors as part of a $450 million deal struck in 2013 — a move that was never disclosed because RatPac-Dune is a private company,” THR said.

A spokesperson for Koch Industries, however, denied the claim, saying, “Charles Koch, David Koch and Koch Industries do not have any involvement with this investment,” according to THR, and RatPac did not respond to the Hollywood trade paper’s inquiries.
