Producers attempting to crowd-fund a film about convicted baby-killer Kermit Gosnell have scored several Hollywood endorsements in recent weeks.

Nick Searcy, who plays Art Mullen in FX’s TV series “Justified,” voiced his support for the film, titled “Gosnell,” in a video posted to YouTube Tuesday. Kevin and Sam Sorbo, also actors, released a similar video of support April 3.

“He is the most prolific serial killer in American history. He killed hundreds of babies, perhaps thousands in a 30 year killing spree,” Searcy says in the video. “Kermit Gosnell was an abortion doctor, and in his clinic babies were born breathing, moving, crying, and then he would stab them to death. And he did it again and again and again.”

Producers Phelim McAleer, Ann McElhinney and Magdalena Segieda have set up an IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign to raise money for the film, which they say is a story the mainstream media and Hollywood have ignored for political reasons.

“This is a story that needs to be told,” Searcy says in the video. “But no one wants to talk about it because the details are too damaging to certain political agendas.”

More than 9,000 people have contributed $777,538 to the project so far. The goal is to raise $2.1 million by May 12, making the campaign one of the most ambitious attempts at crowdfunding a film ever. McAleer, McElhinney and Segieda raised over $200,000 for their last film, “FrackNation,” via crowdfunding.

Gosnell was convicted in May 2013 on three murder charges and 21 felony counts of illegal late-term abortion, among other charges. He is currently serving a life sentence.
