Susan Sarandon dropped from film project after anti-Jewish rant

Susan Sarandon’s career has suffered another blow.

A production company recently decided they no longer want to work with the Oscar winner following her scandalous anti-Jewish rant, Page Six has exclusively learned.

“As a company, PTO Films would like to make it clear that Susan Sarandon’s views do not reflect the opinions of our organization,” David Barroso, the co-founder of the indie film production company, exclusively tells us.

“We were considering her for a short film, but due to her recent statements, we have decided to pursue other options.”

Sarandon, 77, was cast to appear in PTO Films’ short movie called “Slipping Away,” which is a thriller about a schizophrenic man that “struggles with his own psychosis and his wife’s extramarital affair.”

The acclaimed actress was set to star in the role of Dr. Sylvia Mansfield.

The film appeared in her “upcoming” projects list on IMDB under “pre-production” over the weekend, but has since been removed.

The latest professional fallout comes two weeks after powerhouse Hollywood agents at United Talent Agency (UTA) decided to dump the “Thelma & Louise” star following her inflammatory remark.

Page Six exclusively reported in November that UTA staffers felt extremely hurt due to the controversy.

Sarandon said in a pro-Palestinian rally in New York City on Nov. 17 that Jews were “getting a taste of what it is like to be Muslim in this country, so often subjected to violence” following the global rise of antisemitic attacks due to the Israel-Hamas war.

The “Rocky Horror Picture Show” star was spotted a day after she was let go from UTA appearing unbothered as she went for a stroll in the Big Apple.

However, she issued her official apology via social media last Friday, two weeks after her initial statement, which many believed was “too little, too late.”

“This phrasing was a terrible mistake, as it implies that until recently Jews have been strangers to persecution, when the opposite is true,” Sarandon said on Instagram of her controversial comment.

“I deeply regret diminishing this reality and hurting people with this comment,” she added. “It was my intent to show solidarity in the struggle against bigotry of all kinds, and I am sorry I failed to do so.”

Many people, including Meghan McCain, did not accept the “Stepmom” star’s mea culpa.

The former “View” co-host took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to say Sarandon was a “classic example of the horse shoe theory, where woke progressives try and outwoke each other to the point that they are in fact just actually exposing themselves to be racist bigots.”

Sarandon has not further addressed the backlash since her apology, but posted a quote by Jewish historian and playwright Howard Zinn on her Instagram Monday about being “hopeful in bad times.”

The quote read in part, “What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives.

“If we only see the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something.”
