Mike Lindell, founder of the thriving My Pillow empire and now worth an estimated $300 million, has taken on a new role: pro-life movie mogul.

Mr. Lindell has invested $1 million into “Unplanned,” a new film from the makers of “God’s Not Dead” and “I Can Only Imagine,” two Christian films which made $61 million and $84 million, respectively, at the box office. The proverbial Pillow Guy now plans to keep spending on other projects that “fit his own message,” according to The Hollywood Reporter columnist Paul Bond.

“There’s a new film financier around town: the unapologetic Trump-loving, born-again Christian conservative founder of My Pillow,” Mr. Bond wrote, noting that upcoming feature film was shot in secret due to its critical take on Planned Parenthood.

Mr. Lindell also has a cameo in ‘Unplanned’ that’s sure to raise eyebrows in certain circles, as he is seen bulldozing a Planned Parenthood site to make way for the headquarters of an anti-abortion group called 40 Days for Life,” Mr. Bond wrote.

“I’m pro-life and I’m happy to do it,” Mr. Lindell told him.
