Actor Dennis Quaid and his band The Sharks will provide a song for the upcoming docudrama “No Safe Spaces” about political correctness at college universities.

Radio personalities Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager are currently crowdfunding their film “No Safe Spaces,” which is billed as exposing “the dangerous trend of suppressing free speech, and how our future depends on stopping it.” So far, they’ve raised more than $682,000 for the film, which is set for digital release in the spring of 2019.

Mr. Quaid will provide his song “Out of the Box” for the film, because it touches on some of the issues Mr. Carolla and Mr. Prager present about how Americans have gotten too close-minded, he told the New York Post.

“It’s not just Hollywood. Our whole culture has become intolerant,” Mr. Quaid said.

The lyrics in “Out of the Box” stress the importance of “being open to other points of view and not mindlessly giving yourself over to an ‘ism,’” he added.

“When I heard ‘Out of The Box’ it was so obvious that this belonged in the film,” the film’s producer, Mark Joseph, told the Post.

The crowdfunding page for “No Safe Spaces” warns that “trigger warnings, micro-aggressions, the suppression of free speech, and other illogical ideas born on campuses are proliferating and spreading out into the real world.”

“Despite the fact that the film will receive no help from Hollywood or the mainstream media, we are intending for it to be in theaters all across America. And it will serve an essential purpose: Standing up for the First Amendment rights of Americans on college campuses and in the real world,” it adds.

Several prominent actors and commentators will appear in the film, including Tim Allen, Cornel West, Van Jones, Alan Dershowitz, Ben Shapiro, Jordan Peterson and Dave Rubin, the Post reported.

Mr. Quaid, who stars in the Amazon original series “Fortitude,” is playing Ronald Reagan in an upcoming biopic directed by Sean McNamara.
