The actor-turned-leader for the United Kingdom's conservative Reclaim political party said he is being 'un-canceled' by married couple and Irish filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney to play President Joe Biden's son in their new film.
'Hello, I have some really good news – or really bad news depending on which side of the ever-widening political divide that you sit,' Fox said in a straight-to-camera video obtained by DailyMail.com. 'I have been temporarily un-canceled and asked to don my acting shoes again. Why? To play Hunter Biden in a new independent film called 'My Son Hunter.'
'It's a brilliant, surreal and funny script,' he said of the film, 'basically because it's true.'
'The Hunter story fascinates me so much, especially the vigor with which the mainstream media continue to try and suppress it,' Fox continued in his taped comments.
'I couldn't resist the offer to enter his world and tell his truth,' he added. 'So on one level we are both being un-canceled – Hunter's story and Hunter's truth can finally be told.'
Actor Laurence Fox, 43, has signed on to play Hunter Biden in upcoming film 'My Son Hunter'
'I couldn't resist the offer to enter his world and tell his truth,' said Fox, who now leads the Reclaim Party, a conservative political party in the United Kingdom. Hunter and then-Vice President Joe Biden attend a woman's ice hockey game between the U.S. and China on February 14, 2010
Fox then turned to the side and looked off camera, saying to himself: 'I wonder if I can still act. About to find out. See you soon friends.'
McAleer and McElhinney are conservative filmmakers and authors who are also married.
They two have written and produced niche films that are mostly backed by crowdfunded efforts and specifically target conservative viewers. Some films include 'Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer', which is a true crime drama based on abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell; and 'FrackNation', which addressed what they called misinformation about hydraulic fracturing or 'fracking'.
Also joining the team to direct 'My Son Hunter' is Robert Davi, known for his on-screens roles in James Bond film 'License to Kill', cult classic 'The Goonies' and an FBI agent in 'Die Hard.'
In welcoming Fox to the movie, Davi said: 'One of my biggest concerns was in the casting of Hunter. For Hunter we needed someone who is not just a great actor, but a brilliant mind.'
'My Son Hunter' chronicles Hunter's 'elitist party lifestyle, dodgy business dealings, family drama, and corruption'
'Joe Biden has repeatedly said Hunter is the 'smartest man' he knows,' Davi continued. 'We also needed someone with the pedigree, edge, emotional range and deep sensitivity. One may think there are many who could play him and that is so. But how many could brilliantly play him?'
